Another chaser

I watched another broad bodied chaser which had just emerged from its nymph yesterday.

The wings were not yet pumped up and it was clinging to the empty shell of its previous body. (left)

Two hours later, it was just about ready to fly but the body colours still had to develop fully. That would happen over the following few days.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly around the National Trust land at Washington Common and Warren Hill in West Sussex. I also spend some time around my old Steyning walks and other interesting places in West Sussex.
