One of the easier to identify meadowharks that are found in this area is the saffron winged meadowhawk. The easiest way to ID a saffron-winged meadowhawk is to observe the leading edge of each wing. If the edge is a gold, or saffron color then it is a saffron-winged meadowhawk. The males are usually red with the gold edged wings and red wing veins. The females, like the one pictured above, are yellow in color with yellow or orange wing veins. Both male and females have black triangles running up the bottoms of their abdomen and black top spots on sections eight and nine. I photographed this dragon at Park Point in Duluth back on September 20th.
