Freeing of the Dragonfly

Over the weekend our last dragonfly larvae Timmy Tim Tom (he ate the others’ heads off) morphed into an adult. Unlike butterflies, dragonflies do not have a pupal stage in their life cycle, so he went straight to adulthood. We did have some complications though, he fell into the water at some point so it took a little longer than normal for him to dry off and be able to fly.
