Dragonfly, Eastern Amberwing (Perithemis tenera)

Several young, small female Eastern Amberwing dragonflies were testing their wings in a wildflower patch in the field. They were landing on these Virginia Plantain (Plantago virginica) seedheads and testing their wings. A few days latter they were gone.
