A convincing Dragon

When you tell your guests that something is quite rare and that we are lucky to see one and then you see nothing but the thing in question it does make you feel a little uncomfortable. It was like that on one of the tours last weekend.

We stumbled upon a small pool where a large tan coloured dragonfly with bold green eyes was patrolling the perimeter; a Norfolk Hawker. Look at any distribution maps for this species in the UK and you will see how restricted its range actually is; confined to a slither of coastline in East Anglia; this is a scarce beastie. We however, couldn’t stop finding them; every ditch and puddle seemed to have one. I’ve never seen as many. I think my guests believed me … as to how fortunate they were. Either way the opportunity was too good to miss photographically.
