Dragon Fly

Surprising visitor on this chilly blustery day, with leaves falling and sudden gusts - a Dragon fly dropped into the garden. 

Have seen this species before, but usually during the Summer weather.

Tried taking some Macro shots as it rested on the side of the aviary. 

The true beauty of these flyers can be seen in the close detail. 

Species may be an Emperor, or Southern hawker, maybe someone can tell me ?

UPDATE: My thanks to Trust Member Isobel, confirming that it is indeed a Southern Hawker.
