Description:

This was one of nine species of dragonfly I saw yesterday. A record for me, I think! They were Southern Hawker, Brown Hawker, Norfolk Hawker, Four Spotted Chaser, Broad Bodied Chaser, Black Tailed Skimmer, Ruddy Darter, Common Darter and an
Emperor Dragonfly. Didn't managed to photograph them all though, damn it.
This Southern Hawker was in bushes next to some allotments. It was very placid as it basked in the sunshine.
