The migrant hawker, Aeshna mixta, is found throughout central and southern Europe, north Africa, the Middle East and across Asia to China and Japan. As it is a migratory species it can occur outside its normal range and in recent years it has been spreading northwards. Aeshna mixta reproduces mainly in standing, largely unshaded waters, but is also found at slowly flowing streams and rivers. It occurs in a wide range of waters, and larvae even develop in brackish habitats. More about this species: Encyclopedia of LifeImage by Karsten via Flickr
