Ah!

Hi Chris.
The undivided abdominal stripes on S9 and S10 was something I didn't know about. The worst bit is that I used your website to ID it! ;-)

Sorry, old chap...

ID comment

Hi Simon

The easiest rule is that if those antehumeral stripes are wide, 99% sure it's a Southern Hawker, then just check on those abdominal stripes.

If it had been a mature specimen ID would have been far easier.

Regards Chris.

I know, I was teasing!

If my humour was over the top, I sincerely apologise. I wouldn't dream of offending you.

Sorry.

No offence

No offence taken at all, I'm getting to know your humour slowly. No apology needed. Regards Chris.
