Confidence: It might be this.
Notes: Took this photograph along a country lane not far from a small stream. I'm pretty sure this is a Hawker dragonfly but am unable to say which species exactly. I've just posted another dragonfly that I think might be common hawker and which has very different markings on its body to this, yet from my reference book (Brooks) I'm inclined to think this might be a common hawker too. Any help much appreciated!
