[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The ubiquitous Sympetrum striolatum is common and widespread throughout Europe, apart from the very northern extremes. While seen all year in the southern part of its range, the flight season in the north is late summer extending into November.

This photo is of an immature male with obvious secondary genitalia, including long hook of hamule, showing below S2 and absence of vulvar scale projection below S8.
