Sponsa surprise

An afternoon at Blakey Ridge, North Yorkshire was turning out to be a total failure on the Odonata front, with a couple of small ponds checked turning up nothing. With occasional showers, some heavy, it was rather surprising to check the last pond after 6pm to find 200+ Emerald Damsefly Lestes sponsa hung up in the cold. It pays to keep looking!
