I am fascinated by “things with wings” and that includes dragonflies like these mating Halloween Pennants (Celithemis eponia).

The day I took this I was wandering around Roosevelt Wetlands in Pinellas County, Florida in search of birds to photograph. The area has a high concentration of different kinds of dragonflies and when I spotted these two mating I knew I had to get some images of them.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.
