You are getting good at these! It's pretty amazing that you can get these in flight shots on the RP and 70-300, Well done!
We have just hit 38.1 c in my town, only the second time this temperature has been recorded in the UK. So, I haven't wandered out.
Lot of chanses to shoot ,i think there must be least 10 big hawker on ours back yard patrolling around. but yeah temperatures are lot higher i am used too

Maybe it's time that someone in the know informs us of these things. On the other hand in spite of my curiosity so far I haven't gone to the trouble of Googling exactly how their reproductive cycle and activities work. I do know they originally come out of the water and that's about it.

One day at the pond my friend noticed this critter on his camera bag and I shot it.

Hi Jack.
In my opinion, this is one of the coolest shots of what appears to be almost the instant this critter changed state! Very nice.

Cheers, Graham.
