Description:

Further to my previous posts on the Southern Hawker dragonfly, here is a picture of a larva from our pond taken last year. I think it is consistent with Southern Hawker though the image quality is not that good

Southern Hawker larvae

Head and eye shape consistent with A. cyanea (as opposed to Anax). Shape of mask would absolutely confirm, but as long as the pond isn't lake sized it's unlikely to be anything else!!
