The first meadowhawk of the season was seen on the 7th of October. It was an Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum) and was on the smartweed that grows at the end of the boardwalk in the Wetlands.
The following day I saw two more, so keep a sharp eye out for this small, bright red dragon.

I’m always amazed at how many different colors dragonflies come in! Thanks for the picture of this one. I’ll be on the lookout!
I agree, they are quite amazing creatures, not only in diversity of color but in behavior and variety of habitats that they have adapted to.
