My lawnmowing today was interrupted by the arrival of a male Southern Hawker at the pond. It was quite breezy and he made repeated sorties across the water, trying to keep away a few Common Darters which wanted their place by the pool.
Now I've finally sussed out that autofocus is pretty useless on flying dragons, I had a much higher success rate. Yay!
I like the jaunty angle of the first one, but the slightly more blurred wings of the others.
