Band-winged Meadowhawk

On Saturday, Erika and I braved high temperatures and humidity (for Minnesota) and marched across the Art Crawl at the MN Landscape Arboretum. We encountered quite a few Band-winged Meadowhawks. We have found them at the arboretum before (even on the same fence). The reddish background of this photo is due to a distant roadside-construction fence. This color also intensified the bands on the dragonfly’s wings. When I took the photo, I was equally aware of the bright green eyes.
