Striped Meadowhawk

Our stroll through St. Martin’s Univesity on 18 September also yeilded a plethora of Striped Meadowhawks and a few photographically shy darners.  Although we saw the meadowhawks during last year’s Washington visit, we enjoyed seeing these dragonflies again. I wrote, “Striped Meadowhawks range in western North America from British Columbia to the Southwest, and east to the western Great Plains.  Males defend territories in weedy area and over grassy lawns. More than other meadowhawks, they often perch in shrubs, and are usually found near water (Paulson 2009).”
