A 'Hairy' Time in Kent Again!

Hairy Dragonfly

Brachytron pratense

A couple of days ago after work I made another visit back to Westbere Lakes to see what dragonflies were on the wing. Along with a few Blue tailed, Variable and 1 Azure Damselfly I found 1 female Hairy Dragonfly which allowed quite a close approach. I took a number of shots as she rested before a few minutes later she was off chasing the butterflies. The season is well underway now here in England with new species hopefully emerging week by week.

  1. Hairy it is! And the nettle is hairy too! Very nice picture, thank you Marc! Greetings, M.

  2. Oh dear!!
    That is one shot I would have been thrilled to take!
    Since I don't have them around here seeing a hairy dragon is strange! LOL!
    Perfectly well in focus, I guess it was done with the Sigma 150mm?

    1. Yes Noushka, the Sigma 150mm strikes again!

  3. Superbe Marc ! Pas encore vue, celle là, mais elle est sortie dans le secteur !
