This meadowhawk dragonfly is about 30--35 mm (1.2 to 1.4 in) in length. The wings are clear with a yellowish patch near the base of the hindwings. The legs are yellow. Mature males are predominantly red while immature males and females are more brown to yellow.
Meadows, edges of wetlands and forests. I photographed this individual near water along a path in a boreal forest
