No interactions present.
The wide stripes on top of the thorax, the side thoracic pattern and the dark leading edge to the wings (costa) indicate the Southern Hawker. In your area you are also likely to encounter the Common Hawker which by contrast has narrow stripes on the thorax and yellowish costa.
