Dragonfly – Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea)

Yes we have had the new lens for the camera a couple of weeks now, the Bee Eaters have gone to Africa so we have taken many photos of Sparrows but the best picture by me so far has been this beautiful female Dragonfly she is a Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea). She was flying around the swimming pool area ovipositing. She even landed on my leg but was too close to be able to take a picture of her with the new lens.
