What’s yours is mine

Dragonflies, especially the “friendly species,” have no understanding of either personal space or property rights. Of course that’s only part of their appeal!

The following individual is a male Autumn Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum vicinum), perching on the leg of my Columbia convertible pants. I spotted this guy at the “accidental vernal pool,” my nickname for a vernal pool located near the terminus of the Hike-Bike Trail at Huntley Meadows Park that was created accidentally during construction of the new water control system.

The last three photos show another male, perching on my Coleman camp stool, near the small observation platform above the water control system.
