Made it! Dragon fly after emerging from nymph stage

Made itThe same dragon fly a while later – with wings extended, they weren’t visible on the previous photo.  The newly emerged dragonfly takes a while to pump fluid into the wings and abdomen. It can take several hours for the wings to harden before it can take its maiden flight, find a mate and start the cycle all over again*
