Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (male)

Nothing says “Autumn!” quite like the Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum ambiguum). This individual is a male, as indicated by its coloration and terminal appendages. I spotted this specimen near a vernal pool in the forest at Huntley Meadows Park on 06 October 2014.
