Notes

Dragonflies emerge in early morning. It takes long time for them to develop and open wings. Four-spotted dragonfly does not immediately fly. It needs to hide in low shrubs and dry wings. After about 24 hours it is able to fly--then it doesn't like to be photographed. If it is chilly, it takes longer for the dragonfly to mature.
