Common Whitetail dragonflies (females)

On 18 May 2014, I saw lots of Common Whitetail dragonflies (Plathemis lydia) in the meadow east of the observation tower at Huntley Meadows Park.

The dragonflies shown below are females, as indicated by their coloration, pattern of wing spots, and terminal appendages.
