Roll on spring and summer!

Roll on spring and summer!
Last summer, I took very few Dragonfly photos, mainly because most of the parks and natural areas were closed after the devastation caused by Alberta's Flood of the Century. Saw this one - a Cherry-faced Meadowhawk? - at Pearce Estate (near Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, which is still closed thanks to the flood of June 2013).

Oh, is that what those are called! They are quite pretty - I believe I have seen some of those around here too. This is a lovely close shot of this one! I like the details in those wings and even the legs. I can see the little hairs on those legs!

It looks like a Male Cherry-faced Meadowhawk Dragonfly Anne ... outside chance it could be a Ruby Meadowhawk Dragonfly ...
