Halloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina)
Central Park, Carmel, Indiana
I would have preferred a better view of the wings in this shot, but unfortunately this was the best of the images I got on this day. This is an attractive dragonfly that has really distinctive wing markings. Apparently this allows for few mistakes in identification, so I hope this ID is correct! The Halloween Pennant is commonly found near ponds, marshes and lakes the across the eastern half of the US and southern Canada.
This photoblog is my nature journal and travelogue. Many of my wildlife images were made in environments impacted by humans. My goal is to feature each animal in a way that allows the viewer to sense the essence of its life in the wild. The purpose of the accompanying narratives is to enhance awareness and appreciation of our natural world, as well as to inspire everyone to protect and care for it.
