Common Hawker passing by…

By July 28, 2014Blog
I’m always amazed when people can capture these insects on the wing- just as Rob Stokes has photographed this male near Clun. When I first observed Common Hawkers I could barely get a glimpse of these fast fliers and laughed when my field guide described them as ‘relentlessly on the wing!’

Shouldn’t be too long before the first Migrant Hawkers join the fray- smaller with no yellow costa (vein on leading edge of wing) and reduced antehumeral stripes- and in theory easier to photograph!
