I found this exoskeleton hanging on some foliage in my pond can anyone tell me what it is?
It's an exuvia from a Dragonfly. The skin that's left behind after the Nymph changes into an adult. Which species of Dragonflyit is I can't say.
Many thanks Habdab
One of the aeshnids - Southern Hawker, Aeshna cyanea would be a strong contender, they love a garden pond. http://www.british-dragonflies.org.uk/species/southern-hawker
