Halloween Pennant Dragonfly

Look what greeted me in the parking lot of Walmart!

Isn’t he beautiful??? He/She is a Halloween Pennant Dragonfly, named for its festive Halloween colors (yellow, orange, brown). He flew right over my head and landed on this car antenna.

I was in the store for about 45 minutes, when I returned to my car he was back again on the same car. Man, he really likes that antenna! Maybe we will have to do a sketch of him!

    This is really pretty cool. Sitting on the top of that antenna, you can really see how this group of dragons got their common name- they really do look like pennants blowing in the wind.
