The in-flight mating ritual of a pair of Migrant Southern Hawker Dragonflies (Aeshna affinis). I only managed to get one shot - they are so fast! Fascinating to watch the females perching on plants close to the water surface whilst the males circled above and then pounced. There is the exoskeleton of a Damsel Fly (I think) on the left hand side of the perch.
Many thanks for your generous support of my Blue Tit upload - much appreciated, as always
