After the boys of summer are gone.

An Eastern Amberwing dragonfly (Perithemis tenera) was observed during a photowalk with Michael Powell at Painted Turtle Pond, Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Prince William County, Virginia USA.

16 AUG 2019 | Occoquan Bay NWR | Eastern Amberwing (male)

This individual is a male, as indicated by his orange coloration and terminal appendages.

Eastern Amberwing is one of the “boys of summer.” By mid-September, the transition from the summer species of odonates to fall species is well underway.
