Dragons Den

The warm weather has brought out out dragonflies for some concentrated egg laying.

There does not appear to be as many as previous years and not as varied. We have our usual Common Darters and Southern Hawkers and I have also had a couple of Emperors for the first time (the largest of the UK’s dragonflies).

I have been trying to get some decent pictures of the dragonflies in flight but its a bit tricky as the never stay in the same place for more than a second or so. Below ae my best efforts so far.
