 I finally have calmed down and do not feel compelled to photograph every single animal, especially if I take it as a specimen.  Thus August is fairly slim photo wise.  I also had a busy month, first I went to Provincetown, MA With my sister Deirdre, her partner Charles and my cousin Carol to visit my Aunt Jane.  After that we celebrated my mother Wilma’s 80th birthday and played host to my brother Michael, my nephew Dannie and his son Cole. I did have other interesting subjects to photograph, so please check out my website for some of those.        http://www.alisonsinnott.com

Kind of like the Bluets during the summer, the Meadowhawks, Sympetrum sp., are numerous and outwardly similar.  the best way to make sure that you get a male and female of the same species is to net a tamdem pair.

The females are sometimes identical to the malwes but sometimes they look very different.

If you wear light colored clothing these Meadowhawks may land on you to sunbathe.
