Red Meadowhawk

Red Meadowhawk
Sympetrum rubicundulm 1.3 inches

This is one of the red Meadowhawks, most likely the Ruby Meadowhawk. The color of its face suggests that it has recently emerged.

V2 is a close up of his face, the dof breaking off sharply showing the tail end oof.!

Meadowhawks will be found in wetlands, sluggish ponds and streams, or upland in fields and clearings far from water.

Two great shots but love V1, the way the wings look like a veil over it's head.

Two excellent shots, Jenn: the detail in V 2 is exactly where required. I agree with Sandy's comment about the veil effect in V 1.
