Happy In China an old slang expression for Dragonfly is "Old glassy", referring to their transparent, glass-like wings. Here's an ink and color painting by Gao Qipei (1713)

Really need to go track down some hairy dragonfly nymphs. Any tips on where to look (in terms of habitat type/where in the ponds/ditch they are)?

Pleasant session dipping at Westbere. Managed 2 Hairy Dragonfly nymphs, 2 Migrant Hawker nymphs, 2 Large Red Damselfly nymphs and a few Azure/Variable Damselfly nymphs. Can you spot the Hairy Dragonfly nymph?

Dragonfly larvae are capable of ballistic defecation, which means they can shoot their poo out at high speed. Eastern Pondhawk larvae can shoot it up to 23 feet! Why they do this is still up for debate.🤨
