May 2015 (click any small image to see it in an expanded view)
Again, this year as in every year since we built the pond, Cardinal Meadowhawks Sympetrum illotum) have been the dominant species.
Every year the guys claim a territory, fight with the other males of thier species, and try to claim amy female that apporoaches. This male is actually quite young as he is still a bit pale on his underside.
