Emergence of Four-spotted Chaser

This is my first posting on this blog and is a re-posting from the East Glamorgan Wildlife blog. Mike Thornton suggested I place them here.

Called in Parc Slip on 25 June and was very fortunate to witness the emergence of a Four-spotted Chaser from the pupa. As is always the case, I didn't have the right lens with me but took pictures with what I had and hoped for the best. I have attached a set of photos, of variable quality, of the whole procedure as I saw it. The first image was taken at 10:51 and the final one at 12:31. One of nature's wonders and a privilege to watch.

Hi Howard, these pictures are brilliant, would you mind if we shared it on the Parc Slip Facebook page?
