Late Fall Dragonflies

I photographed this Autumn Meadowhawk near the Passaic River in Lord Stirling Park yesterday. It was one of about a dozen or more meadowhawks that I observed. Autumn Meadowhawks are one of the few odonate species still flying this late in the year. NJ Odonata Survey lists their late date as December 8.

Earlier in the week, I saw both Autumn Meadowhawks and Common Green Darners flying at Rutgers Gardens.
