Mosaic Darner

Dear Alison,
How unusual to see this magnificent Dragonfly and blossoms so late in the season in Ontario.  We can’t provide you with an exact species, but we believe this is one of the Mosaic Darners in the genus
Aeshna which is pictured on BugGuide.  Many species in the genus are quite similar looking.

Thank you!  I’m sorry that maybe I didn’t say that the photo was taken on Sept 12 ’18 .
