Slender Spreadwing damselfly (female)

A Slender Spreadwing damselfly (Lestes rectangularis) was spotted near a vernal pool at Huntley Meadows Park. This individual is a female, as indicated by her terminal appendages.

I found the female Slender Spreadwing while searching for Great Spreadwing damselflies (Archilestes grandis). As it turns out, the first Great Spreadwings of 2016 were spotted at the same location on 22 September.
