WooHoo! The dragonfly eggs I have been observing since last September have started hatching, on day 203 since being oviposited.
This is the 6th species in this group of closely related species that I have reared, and documented the embryo development. Watching these tiny 3mm long nymphs behavior and morphology and noting differences between these species at these earliest stages of life is fascinating, to me.
As far as I know, no one else has ever observed or documented these stages of the lives of these species.
I'm getting video too!
