Chasing the damsels?

There are about 25 damselfly exuviae on the iris stem in the pond. But, more interesting, are my first two broad bodied chaser exuviae. (One shown right). They are twice the size of the common darter ones I found there last year.

The second picture is a freshly emerged large red damselfly with some small exuviae in the background.

It looks like there are plenty of damsels for the chaser to chase!

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.
