Blue Dasher dragonfly (teneral female)

I spotted a Blue Dasher dragonfly (Pachydiplax longipennis) during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 08 August 2014. This individual is a teneral female, as indicated by its coloration and terminal appendages. She was sheltering in leaf litter alongside the raised gravel trail through the “drowned forest,” just beyond the end of the boardwalk.
