2019 Dragons.

As ever throughout the year I have been on the lookout for some of our amazing dragonflies and damselflies, although with so many distractions this year I haven't been able to give as much time to them as usual.

This is a selection of some of my favourite odonata moments from the year which starts with the beautiful Scarce Chaser that I saw during a butterfly survey in the late Spring and finishing with the Brown Hawker in the Autumn, which is possibly the hardest species to photograph.

  1. Amazing collection of outstanding images.

  2. Excellent series of photos Bob. 1st class. I would agree with your Brown Hawker in that they are probably the hardest species to photograph. Don't think I've had a chance this season.

  3. Hello Bob

    Greetings Frank

  4. Realy amazing. The brown hawker is wondelful. I missed him this season…
