The female Brown Hawker Dragonfly (Aeshna grandis) lays its eggs on timber or vegetation that is emerging from slow flowing water.
I was able to shoot these images in a small ditch that was under a canopy of trees and flowing into a river. The light was not good as the female found the darkest spot she could find to lay her eggs.
With Brown Hawkers you rarely get the chance to shoot them as they are always on the wing and will only pitch high up and usually out of sight. So this was a good opportunity to get some shots and I certainly haven't seen them omnipositing before.
