Common Hawker in flight

By September 5, 2016Blog

Some lovely photos of Common Hawker in flight taken by Stephen Barlow. The female is seen here on the left with a far stockier body and very reduced antehumeral stripes, and the male is shown below with his waisted abdomen and prominent narrow antehumeral stripes. Both the male and female show the prominent yellow costa -the leading vein of the wing.
