Autumn Meadowhawk (f & m in tandem)

(Sympetrum vicinum). Often the last dragonfly to be seen in a calendar year. Males are all red, lacking the black markings along the abdomen that characterize other red colored meadowhawks. Also legs are yellowish brown as as opposed to black in other species. Abundant and gregarious. Habitat: permanent water with trees and shrubs. Season: late summer and fall. photo by Ann Cooper.
