Brown hawker

Finding and identifying brown hawker dragonflies isn't that difficult but photographing them is.  Last year I managed to get a photo of one slightly secondhand male for the first time.

Last weekend I found some more at Croome Park in Worcestershire.  A few females were ovipositing - the first females I have seen.

As usual the males were flying non-stop on patrol so I tried a few flight shots.

I haven't yet seen brown hawker here in the North East although according to the British Dragonfly Society website they do get this far north.  I'll be keeping my eyes open.
