    A male (red) Meadowhawk

    By on

    A male (red) Meadowhawk dragonfly. The Meadowhawks around here are hard to tell apart - you have to look closely at their junk and we can't see this one's junk (at the other end) so we can't tell.

    Looks great!

    Pretty sharp detail and that looks like a mint family plant its on.

    Bug photography is a handful cause they rarely stay put and have that erratic Brownian motion thing going on.
