Still one of my favorite dragonflies!

Relax, Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonflies (Sympetrum ambiguum) — rest assured you’re still one of my favorite species of dragonflies! Yeah, yeah, I know I’ve shown a lot of love for Great Spreadwing damselflies (Archilestes grandis) lately, but hey, don’t worry — they’re not even in the same suborder of odonates as you!

This individual is a male, as indicated by his coloration and terminal appendages. This guy was the third of eight males spotted on 06 September 2015, approximately one week after Mike Powell reported spotting the first Blue-faced Meadowhawk of 2015 at the same remote location in Huntley Meadows Park.

    The Blue-faced Meadowhawks are one of my favorites too–the color combination is simply spectacular.
