Penetang animals: meadowhawk

I think this is a white-faced meadowhawk, Sympetrum obtrusum
I found this one, my first dragonfly sighting in Canada in five years, at the Tiny (this is a township, not a description of size) Marsh. Its wings were bent strangely.

Some of these dragonflies also have a male/female colour morph with the males being red. In Korea, the claim is they turn red at mating season but I don't know if that is true.
