Meadowhawk Dragonfly

This Meadowhawk was visiting the pond and stayed for a while. In New Jersey, this could be one of 4 different Meadowhawks, which they say cannot be identified in the field. They seem to list them as “Eastern” Cherry-faced Meadowhawks, which seems to cover a few types. It has a very vibrant coloring and textures and was fun to photograph.
