Sympetrum occidentale


western meadowhawk in Taylorsville Utah
As far as I know, this is the first one of these
I've photographed in my hard in Taylorsville,
Salt Lake County, Utah.  Carol Davis 7-9-2021

This is the only dragonfly I saw all day on Antelope Island.
 The temperature was right around 60 degrees when I found this
one resting in a bush.  Isn't it perfect?  Must have just hatched out.

  It's late for dragonflies but I have found them (a
Variegated Meadowhawk) as late as November 30th. 
Seems like it would be a dangerous time for dragonflies
with all the birds in migration.  Carol Davis 10-23-2009
