The Red Dragon
After a little research this appears to be a Ruby Meadowhawk.
- sympetrum rubicundulum.
We turned our front yard into a tall grass prairie with lots of flowering plants. As a result we get a large number of butterflies,dragonflies and bees.
The birds come in to eat various insects and spiders.
The best part is I don't have to water, fertilize our cut grass.
