Aeshna mixta #2

Posted by Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 11 November 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Aeshna mixta (NL: Paardenbijter / EN: Migrant Hawker / DE: Herbst-Mosaikjungfer / FR: Æschne mixte) is one of the smaller species of hawker dragonflies. It can be found away from water but for breeding it prefers still or slow-flowing water and can tolerate brackish sites. The flight period is from July to the end of October. A. mixta occurs in North Africa, southern and central Europe to the Baltic region.
