Dragonfly Walk

I walked up to the woods at noon
hoping to see Dragonflies.

A male Ruby Meadowhawk perched near the path.

This one looks to have an orange and black abdomen.
It could be the light or it could be a different Meadowhawk.
Dragonflies are very hard to id!

A female Familiar Bluet watched me as I walked by.
There are 35 species of Bluets in the Damselfly Family.

A pair of mating Bluets flew from the path to a stem.

The season is being to wind down for the Dragonflies and Damselfies.
I will miss them.
