This is your common hogweed not the giant stuff that’s poisonous and illegal to grow.

This, if I’m not mistaken, is a female of the species Sympetrum striolatum and at the risk of being terribly politically incorrect is a bit of a stunner. Here it is taking up the sun on a fence on Snuff Mill Lane.
Margot took this because the camera and I have issues over macro shots grrrr.
