Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (male)

One look at the full-size version of the preceding photo and I’m sure you’ll understand why the Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum ambiguum) is one of my favorite species of dragonfly!

This individual is a male, as indicated by its coloration and terminal appendages. I spotted this handsome devil near a vernal pool in the forest at Huntley Meadows Park on 06 October 2014. The dragonfly is perching on a tree limb that looks like a wooden bird nest.
