Damselflies emerge and avoid puns

Delighted to see my first damselflies of the year today (May 13th) emerging from the kitchen garden pond. I won't say anything about being unlucky or in distress, but the individual pictured below didn't make the best of starts. It's been quite a blustery day, so I assume the wings got damaged by a collision before they had time to dry. Happily, I also saw one fly away successfully and another drying off on a more sheltered bit of leaf.
