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.

    Really nice look at this pair. Halloween Pennants are one of my favorite Odes!
