Sympetrum vicinum (Autumn Meadowhawk)True to its common name, the last odonate to be found each season and sometimes even after Thanksgiving. Widespread throughout the state, though somewhat less common in the mountains. Its distribution is fairly similar to that of S. internum. Regularly seen drifting, sometimes pairs in tandem, at fall hawkwatch sites. It basks in what little sun is available in various open habitats late in the year.
