Autumn Meadowhawk

Flying into November, Autumn Meadowhawks are the latest dragonflies of the North Woods. They survive until hard freezes and do well in temperatures in the high 40s (Mead). Despite this hardiness, the species ranges north only to southern Canada.This male’s wings do look a bit tattered. Yesterday, 9 November 2015, this Autumn Meadowlark flew up and landed on a sunny wall. We have only had a couple of light frosts this fall.
