The Hardy Boys

No, not Frank and Joe Hardy, and their portly pal Chet Morton. Rather I’m referring to three hardy male Autumn Meadowhawk dragonflies (Sympetrum vicinum), shot during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park on 11 November 2013, that have survived several nights of below-freezing temperatures. These three guys were among tens of males that I spotted during a three-hour photowalk in the central wetland area. Notice that Male 2 appears to be eating an unknown insect.

    How long can they last when the weather is this cold? At least it has been warming up a bit most days. I love your shots of the “boys.”
