Female Band-winged Meadowhawk visiting an orange hydraulic jack....maybe she thought it was a very attractive fellow!
White-faced Meadowhawk resting at my pond. This is the exuviae, the discarded skin left after the dragonfly emerges from the water and hits the skys. The Blue Dasher often holds his wings forward when at rest. And sometimes dragonflies also make a tasty treat for the Tree Swallows that live at my pond!!! I hope they don't eat them all!!! Bon Appetit!!!
