HAIRY DRAGONFLY

Drag­on­flies can be slow to get go­ing in spring, but one of the first of these über-preda­tors to be air­borne is the Hairy Dragonfly. By emerg­ing early, it steals a march on the hawk­ers that it re­sem­bles; those larger, but sim­i­larly striped ‘dragons’ don’t fly un­til June/july. Although lo­cally dis­trib­uted in south­ern Bri­tain and Ire­land, it is spread­ing rapidly.
