Description

Shillingstone in Dorset

Another dragonfly emerges from its' larvi case on an iris leaf next to Cookwell Brook. This one is clearly identifiable as a male Southern Hawker, by the yellow triangle situated on its' abdomen, behind the rear wing sockets. The wings on the right of the picture are not yet fully inflated. The River Stour and the ponds and streams in the North Dorset Stour Valley create an environment for a great many species of dragonflies, butterflies and moths.
