Eastern Pondhawk dragonfly (female)

An Eastern Pondhawk dragonfly (Erythemis simplicicollis) was spotted during a photowalk with Mike Powell at Occoquan Regional Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. This individual is a female, as indicated by her terminal appendages.

Beginners beware — immature male Eastern Pondhawks are the same color as females of the same species.
