Autumn Meadowhawk

Bad news. On 15 August 2021, this Autumn Meadowhawk visited Erika’s garden. Note its yellow legs. This species is one of the last dragonflies to appear in the year—a first sign of fall. These meadowhawks have a kind of strange range, being found in most of eastern North America east of the Rocky Mountains and in the Northwest, from southern British Columbia and western Montana south to central California—with none between the two populations.
