Notice the 21-minute time difference between the two photos. I thought I’d spotted two males until I saw identical damage to the right hindwing (facing forward) when I was editing the photos.
27 October was my previous late-date for Blue-faced Meadowhawk, tied with the record late-date for the Commonwealth of Virginia. 06 November is both a new personal late-date as well as a record-setting late-date for the state.
Editor’s Note: If you check the EXIF for both photos, then you will see the time stamp is one hour later than the times shown above. 06 November was the first time I used my camera since the end of Daylight Saving Time (at 2:00 a.m. the same day) — I forgot to reset the time in-camera!
