Reconnecting with a dear friend

Hello, friend. It’s good to see you again! Where have you been?

I spotted my first Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum ambiguum) of Fall 2014 during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 30 September 2014. This individual is a male, as indicated by its coloration and terminal appendages.

I spent a lot time looking for Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonflies during Fall 2013. (See “In the beginning…” for details.) Last year I spotted the first Blue-faced Meadowhawk nearly two weeks earlier than this year.

    The color combination on these dragonflies never ceases to amaze and please me. I am happy to see that you have reconnected with your old friends. Hopefully they will be a bit easier to find than last year.

    Thanks so much … I photographed one of these September 4th in southern Illinois and hadn’t been able to identify it until now.
