Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (female, red morph), redux

The following gallery shows another andromorphic Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum ambiguum). This individual was spotted along the boardwalk during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park on 08 October 2013.

Some dragonflies, like this one, are very cooperative models. I was able to shoot over a dozen sets of photos of this female in a variety of poses. I am especially fond of shots in which the dragonfly strikes an unusual pose, such as the photo shown below.

Editor’s Note: This is Part 4 in a six-part series of posts featuring Blue-faced Meadowhawks, one of my favorite dragonflies.
