|* Yellow-legged Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum)|
Found around all sorts of slow waters, usually more common near woodlands.
Males are mostly red, lacking the black abdominal triangles of most of our other meadowhawks. Instead they have variable black markings laterally and dorsally on segments 8-10. Females are recognized by the prominent projecting subgenital plate. Contrary to the name, legs range from yellow to brown or even reddish.

The shot is a little dark but I think I like it that way .. the red really stands out and you have the catch light in it's eyes .. I also like the rule of 3rd too..

Wonderful shot of this beautiful dragonfly with awesome red colours. Superb lighting and you have freezed a fabulous moment. It stands out well from the darkish BG with a glow. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
Great shot of this in flight Kevin.
Quite good sharpness and great background makes the vivid red stand out even more.
