Southern Hawkers

Aha, thanks to a pic on the headers page for the RSPB Langford Lowfields alert, the most common dragonfly (along with the Common Darter) I've been seeing all year is revealed.

Yes, those steampunk zeppelins, those miniature versions of the Lexx from the weird sci fi channel show, those delectable sky captain bombers, are Southern Hawkers;

And yes they do seem curious of people - they come to me at Farndon at Willow Holt, down by the river, hovering up like buzzy little spying devices.

Beautiful creatures.
