Enter the Dragon’s Lair, Part 2

In part 2 of this mini-series, I’m featuring some of the many Eastern Amberwings dragonflies that I found at a local Missouri Conservation Area last week. These are some of my favorite dragonflies. They are such a beautiful color, although sometimes a bit more difficult to find due to the transparent amber coloration of the wings, especially the males.

Here are a couple of images of the male:

The wings of the females are definitely different from the males:
