Keep your eyes peeled for dragonfly exuvia around ponds over the coming weeks. The exuvia is the skin of the dragonfly nymph which it sheds during its metamorphosis into an adult dragonfly. The nymphs crawl up the stems of plants so this is a good place to look for them (especially Iris leaves). The ponds at Threave Gardens are heaving with nymphs at the moment so plenty of adult dragonfly should be on the wing over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for them to.
