Autumn Meadowhawks

October and November are prime months for Autumn Meadowhawks; they remain active while most other odonates have stopped flying. They were active in good numbers yesterday. The only other dragonfly I saw was a darner of some sort (probably Aeschna sp.), and besides that I saw one spreadwing damselfly.

This individual is a female, which has a light brown body color in contrast to the red of the adult males.
