Male dragonfly found near the edge of the water at low tide (intertidal zone), obviously cold and stranded. Found by Daniel Sinclair and subsequently seen by Anna Holdaway and myself (I took the image). Given that this is a species prone to important migration, this individual may have been grounded by weather in the process of such a northward movement. Many individuals were observed all over the park in open areas in subsequent days. This was the first known, official record of this species for the park and indeed for Albert County, New Brunswick.

Liam said this was prehistoric looking -- I agree!
My last shot of this trip!
Even in the dark cool day we had I seen at least 35 of these and I am guessing they most likely migrated in since none were seen yesterday and had some females egg laying in some puddles alread

Don't know if there is any chance of a further ID, but there are some amazing odonata experts on iNat.
ID Paul Hoekstra.
Note wide hind wings and small round dark basal spot. Hilltopping; not at pond.
The Spot-winged Glider (Pantala hymenaea) is a dragonfly of the family Libellulidae. It looks very much like the Wandering Glider with the addition of a basal spot on the hindwing....
