|Blue-spotted Hawker Adversaeschna brevistyla|
Thanks a lot for identification, Chris (Sandpiper2)
A large dragonfly with bright-blue pattern on black, with two prominent blue stripes on each sides of the thorax. Notice the two large blue spots and the "cat face" pattern on the back near the wings base. The leading edge of all wings are pale orange in colour. Its scientific name was Aeshna brevistyla and changed to Adversaeschna brevistyla lately.

Prety sure its a Blue-spotted Hawker(Adversaeschna brevistyla)which are quite numerous around Sydney this year.
Great in-flight shot with exception speed and sharpness around the head and upper body. Its great to see how they tuck their legs up underneath. Great POV.
A fantastic shot, Fatih, just at the right moment - and with perfect sharpness, I like it so much, thanks and bye

Hi Fatih, this is a very excellent shot of the Blue-spotted Hawker. I tried to catch some dragonflies in air like this and didn't even come close. Shot at 1/8000, wow. Your focus is excellent producing very remarkable sharp detail. Very nice.
