One-off

Sometimes, one picture tells the whole story …

Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonflies (mating pair, in wheel)

The preceding photograph shows a mating pair of Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonflies (Sympetrum ambiguum) spotted on 27 October 2014 near a vernal pool in the forest at Huntley Meadows Park.

The pair is “in wheel”: the male is on top; the female is on the bottom. The female is a heteromorph, as indicated by her coloration.
