Woodland favourite…

Often when walking in woods I’m closely inspected by Southern Hawker males or see them hawking up and down woodland rides. Kate Jones and family were also enjoying this male near some muddy puddles in the woods at Haughmond Hill recently. A good photo for showing the headlights (big broad antehumeral stripes) and tail lights (paired dots merging into stripes at the end of the abdomen) that make this species readily identifiable.
