Blue-faced Meadowhawk
Sympetrum ambiguum
The Blue-faced Meadowhawk (Sympetrum ambiguum) is essentially a dragonfly of the eastern United States. It occurs as far west as central Texas and the top 4 images here were taken in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, in November, 2007, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender.
The male Blue-faced Meadowhawk on the right was at Mountain Fork Park, McCurtain Co., Oklahoma, in July, 2011.
