The male eastern pond hawk is bluish while the female is grass green with black stripes on its abdomen. The two couldn't look any more different. Whenever I call out "female eastern pondhawk" as a dragon zips by, newbies are often amazed that I could tell it was a female. "How do you know it was a female?", they ask. For dragons that are sexually dichromatic, it's an easy giveaway. Tomorrow, I'll post a picture of the female eastern pondhawk.
