Dragons In The Air...
Of all the insect nymphs you may possibly find in your pond, dragonflies may be the most common, and eventually the most beautiful. Dragonflies mate in the air, and the females deposit their eggs in the pond in many various places, such as plant stems or in a moist nook along the pond's edge. The eggs hatch and the small nymphs emerge, eating just about anything --worms, other insect's nymphs, or even small fish. Then, after at least three months they will crawl out of the water onto a stem, rock, or a log, just above the water's surface, and go through the transformation into adulthood, which is called imago.
