Safron-winged Meadowhawk

 This Safron-winged Meadowhawk was seen in Goulds in September 2014. It is also worth noting the best viewing of dragonflies and damselflies seems to occur at mid-day or during the afternoon. This species is very similar to the Cherry-faced Meadowhawk. I poured over the identification.
One of the significant identifiers is the four small white stripes at the lower base of both the forewings and hindwings. In the first photo also note the yellow-orange color on the right side of the inner hindwing. Without photos from all sides that are bright and in focus, it is quite a challenge to name these.
