Variegated Meadowhawk (Sympetrum corruptum)

Originally, I had no idea what this was. I have difficulty IDing birds, much less bugs. Last fall I took this shot hand holding a 500 mm lens, which is very heavy. I don't think that lens was designed to be used on bugs, but this was what I saw in my hunt for birds that day! : )


Thank you, Roberta, for IDing this as a Variegated Meadowhawk!
