The smallest Hawker

That's the Hairy Dragonfly.
I saw my first ever at Westbere Marshes in Kent, a female ovipositing in a ditch between the private fishing lake and the marsh itself. It has the shortest flight season of the Hawkers and is the earliest.
The female has more hair than the male !!
A twisting and contorting Dragon.


  1. :o And you said you saw nowt. That would be a lifer for me ! Cracking dragon.

  2. It was for me. I was expecting a SCARCE CHASER !!!!!!!!!
