Migrant Hawker (Aeshna mixta) - Holmthorpe Nature Reserve

I found this guy near the road in the shade and spent ages trying to get the best lighting with my camera. After a while though I realized that I could pick up the leaf he was standing and transport him to some where with better lighting. Eventually I found a spot at the other side of the reserve and managed to get this shot, before he took off.
