Large Red Damselfly Pyrrhosoma nymphula

The Large Red Damselfly (Pyrrhosoma nymphula) is a European damselfly. One of the most common damselflies, the Large Red Damselfly is often the first damselfly to emerge, usually in April or May. They inhabit a variety of waters including ponds and dykes, and occasionally slow-moving rivers. On a summer day the dash of red perfectly complements the blue of Azure and Common Blue Damselflies.
