Taking the heat out of a Dragon

When the sun goes in cold blooded dragonflies rest a while. It’s then they can be photographed. Finding them is however another matter.

I watched a Southern Hawker the other day repeatedly fly up and down a hedgerow on a patrolling mission; very territorial these creatures. Up and down it went; time after time. At last a cloud covered the sun, the temperature dropped and it rested for a while.

So beautiful are these things … and so delicate too.
