The Ruby Meadowhawk is a common dragonfly in the northeast United States. I’ve often observed these tiny dragonflies hovering in one spot and are not usually afraid to land on a human hand. Males are a vibrant red and females tend to be a light brown or orange color. I found this little fella sunbathing right in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera.
