Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (male) 2

The following gallery shows a Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum ambiguum). This individual is a male, as indicated by its coloration and terminal appendages.

This specimen was the second of three male Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonflies spotted during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park on 08 October 2013.

Editor’s Note: This is Part 5 in a six-part series of posts featuring Blue-faced Meadowhawks, one of my favorite dragonflies.
