Variegated Meadowhawk, female (Sympetrum corruptum) — Of all the species of meadowhawk dragonflies in MT, the variegated is the most boldly patterned. With a body length of 1.5 to 2 inches, these beautiful dragonflies are often found far from water — often seen on the ground more than other meadowhawks. They tend to be most abundant in the early spring and late summer / fall months. Photo by Glenn Marangelo on 6/11/17 in Missoula, MT.
