Southern Hawker

Male Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea) in flight
(Canon EOS 60D, Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS @ 100mm, 1/500s @ f/8.0)

The "Indian Summer" that we are experiencing at the moment is great. We went for a walk at Consall Nature Park today and saw this male Southern Hawker. The in-flight photo is not quite in focus but is the best of over 50 shots!
We also saw Migrant and Brown Hawkers.


  1. It's a great photo. I have seen a lot of dragonflies lately too.

  2. It's still a wonderful shot.
