Meadowhawk? - Sympetrum costiferum

Meadowhawk? - Sympetrum costiferum
Mount Loretto State Unique Area, Richmond County, New York, USA
July 3, 2017
At the limits of my optics, unfortunately. A rather brief percher, often chased off by smaller Blue Dashers, at pond. Larger than the Autumn Meadowhawks I'm used to. Saffron-winged? Male Needham's?
