Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea)

Spotted this fella in Rowney Woods – dragonflies may be bigger than damselflies, and you would have thought they would be easier to photograph – you have to be lucky to get one resting like this – normally they are permanently in motion patrolling their area, damselflies must get tired – they are always resting, waiting for their photo to be taken 😉 The Southern Hawker is one of the largest dragonflies you’ll find in Britain (fractionally smaller than the Emperor Dragonfly)
