Go to Top Southern and Brown Hawker Dragonflies

Posted: 10 September 2014

It was a beautiful warm afternoon and Diana and I were taking a tea break at around 14:50. There were dragonflies about so I had my camera with me. I only had to walk a few feet down the path beside the house before I found my first one, a Southern Hawker...

Diana called me back when she noticed a Brown Hawker settled on the wall beside the lounge patio doors.

Both of these creatures are impressively large and it made a change to see them settled. Almost all the hawkers that I have photographed earlier in the year have been on the wing or rather far away when there is little chance of getting a sharp image.
