[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A White-faced Meadowhawk pauses/hunts for a moment on a blade of marsh grass.

This appears to be a slightly immature male having not yet attained a fully red abdomen & thorax.

These are of the most friendliest & diminutive of dragonflies averaging just over an inch in length.

I have posted an additional workshop shot to show a better feel for their size & trusting nature.
