Oatka Creek Park • August 16


Yellow-Legged Meadowhawk. This is a small dragonfly, measuring only an inch and a third.

Yellow-Legged Meadowhawk.  There are a number of red meadowhawk species that could be in our area according to the field guides. However, this one is the most common this time of year. Also, the others required views under a 20x microscope to tell apart, so I'll just stick with this ID, right or wrong!
