Variegated Meadowhawk Dragonfly

Sympetrum corruptum

Description:

I spotted this Variegated Meadowhawk dragonfly walking the Ferry Point Loop Trail in Point Richmond, CA.

Habitat:

Ferry Point Loop Trail in Point Richmond, CA.

Notes:

Dragonflies are valuable predators that eat mosquitoes, and other small insects like flies, bees, ants, and very rarely butterflies. They are usually found around lakes, ponds, streams and wetlands because their larvae, known as "nymphs," are aquatic.
