This is the cover photo of my calendar Dynamite Dragonflies: The Sequel
The Halloween Pennant dragonfly is the largest, most widely distributed, and perhaps most colorful small pennant species. Its common name is descriptive because of its distinctive orange and brown or black wings. It perches uniquely, with the fore and hindwings in different planes. The forewings are held somewhat vertically and the hindwings horizontally (as you can see). I find these little beauties regularly in my yard in Rockaway, NJ. I took this with a Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 85mm macro lens.
