Autumn Meadowhawk

Yep, it's the season - go find your last odonates now before they're gone! This Autumn Meadowhawk is an aptly named common sight as we wrap up the insect year.

Once the calendar flips to October a great deal of dragonflies, damselflies, butterflies, and more seem to start disappearing almost overnight in Connecticut. I will share a few more odonate sightings in the next couple of months, including my favorite find of 2012 that I will post next week. It's a dragonfly, and it's state-listed. Take your guesses!
