Thank you both for the ID!

Geodialist, I was visiting the Hibernia mines; the map location is a bit off. Do you know what the area is known for? Bats. I had the sour luck of seeing only one as it flew across my windshield. :( It was the wrong time of year.

This individual is a female Halloween Pennant dragonfly, as indicated by its yellow stigma. BTW, what are you doing in NJ, mauna?
