Gray on gravel

A Gray Petaltail dragonfly (Tachopteryx thoreyi) was spotted during a photowalk at Occoquan Regional Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

This individual is a male, as indicated by his terminal appendages. He was perched on a gravel road, much to my surprise.

This is the first Gray Petaltail that I’ve seen at the park since 04 June 2018, when I saw several individuals near a forested seep.
