* Yellow-legged Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum)

* Range:
Found around all sorts of slow waters, usually more common near woodlands.

* Description:
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..

Hi Kevin,
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.
