In the Garden there be Dragons

Having my coffee on the patio (!) this morning I spotted a dragonfly flitting about the garden. It, very obligingly, decided to settle on the orange blossom shrub right in front of me so I took a lot of pictures. It stayed for a long time and, as it is a bit pale in colour compared with the Google images, I suspect it is newly emerged. I think it is a female Southern Hawker.

PS. Another dragonfly below. Broad Bodied Chaser seen at Attenborough NR 18/06
