Caption: Hairy hawker dragonfly (Brachytron pratense). This native British dragonfly gets its name from the hairs found on its body (white). It inhabits still ponds and canals, where the nymphs (not seen) hunt among the water weeds. The hairy hawker dragonfly is one of eight species in the Aesnidae family that all have long colourful bodies. It is the one of the earliest dragonflies to take to the wing, sometimes seen flying as early as April.
