Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea)

Sue and I had a trip up to the man made pond in the quarries above Trevor previously shown on the blog to what if anything was around on a lovely summer afternoon. We spotted a few adult Dragonflies flying around the pond and closer inspection of the emergent vegetation showed several empty larval skins and a couple of dragonflies emerging and drying their wings. On our return Sue identified the adults and exuviae as belonging to Southern Hawker a new species to both of us .
