Dragonflies with damaged wings :-(
Lots of beautiful dragonflies emerging from our pond at the moment. Sadly there are currently 2 common hawkers each with a damaged wing who cannot fly. One has been there for 3 days and the other for 2 whilst others that emerged at the same time have long since flown away. Its so sad to see. So I was wondering if anyone knew if there was anything at all I could do to help them. I have moved them away from the pond so they don't fall in (one already did and I rescued it from drowning!). I wonder if they feel pain? If I cut off the damaged wing would that help? The damaged wing on both seem to be getting in the way of the other wings.
