Dragonfly days-- Common or Eastern Pond Hawk
This Common Pond Hawk is male. Pond hawks are one of the most plentiful dragonflies you'll observe.
This male is not looking for a blue mate, however. His taste is for a lady in green.
Female Common Pond Hawks are beautiful bright green. The brilliance of the green does fade with age, though. You can always tell a newly metamorphosed dragonfly by the brilliance of its colors.
