Migrant Hawker Dragonfly (Aeshna Mixta)
Location: Lakeside Park, Eastleigh, Hampshire, Uk. 29/08/05.
I noticed these dragonflies flying up and down in front of a line of pine trees on the edge of a large park always returning to the same branches to rest in the sunshine.
The males have brown with blue markings and the females are brown with yellow markings. The adult dragonflies which feed on the wing can be seen from July to November.
