Autumn, or Yellow-legged Meadowhawks are common dragonflies across much of North America. This dragonfly is the fifth species of Odonata that I have found in our backyard. I am amazed at their crimson eyes. The meadowhawk in the photo above is an immature male. It will become brighter red as the season progresses. The photo below is of a female. The yellowish legs and the downspout ovipositor are good field marks. Thanks of Scott King for identification help.
