Limited Ode-ing in Yuma County, AZ

I spent a few days in and around Yuma, Arizona this week and only found two species of dragonflies. Of course, the primary purpose was visiting family, but I kept an eye out for insects.

#1 = Variegated Meadowhawk (Sympetrum corruptum)
This species was observed a few times at various locations near canals. This cooperative female was found in some saltbrush flats east of Tacna on November 23rd:

#2 = Wandering Glider (Pantala flavescens)
Two individuals were found at the Yuma West Wetlands Park on November 24th.
