White-Faced Meadowhawk

We were in a corn maze today.  And in the maze lived many many dragonflies.  There were countless red dragonflies all along the way. And the bigger dragonflies coasted far above us.  Here are a few photos of the ones nearest to us. They were very shy, but a couple allowed me a photo shoot for a few seconds.  They are male white-faced meadowhawk dragonflies.
