Caption: Sombre goldenring dragonfly metamorphosis. This dragonfly (Cordulegaster bidentata) is emerging from the larva. Its wings are fully extended and it is ready to fly. The larva is aquatic and escapes the water by climbing on to the stem of a plant whilst undergoing metamorphosis. Photographed in Greece in May.
