There we were, walking through the neighborhood, enjoying some fine weather between the scatter showers, and this little fellow zoomed past us. I was able to sneak up and get a picture.
It's an Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum). They're little, members of the skimmer (Libellulidae) category. They're about two inches long with a three inch wingspan.
Just thought you'd enjoy it.
