Variegated Meadowhawk (two photos)
Sympetrum corruptum

As you can see, this photo is not posted for its beauty but for the lateness of the species.  I found this at Garr Ranch on Antelope
Island along with a male and female Darner of unknown species, who never touched down long enough to identify. The two
darners were depositing eggs in the very limited wetland area. This little meadowhawk was patrolling the area for
intruders (like any other meadowhawk in its right mind would be in Northern Utah the last of November).
