Dragonfly with prey on gorse, Burbush Hill, New Forest
Dragonfly with prey on gorse, Burbush Hill, New Forest
This dragonfly was buzzing around, heavily laden with a moth that it had caught, and eventually settled for a while on this gorse bush. With no expert knowledge at all I'd guess that it was a Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea) because its common in the south of Britain and it looks about right.
