The picture of this Halloween Pennant Dragonfly was taken at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Westchester, NY.The Halloween Penannant forages from atop tall grasses, weeds and stems in open fields some distance from the water. It perches uniquely, with the forewings and hindwings in different planes. The forewings are held somewhat vertically and the hindwings horizontally.
I took this picture with my CANON EOS20D and the CANON 100mm f2.8 MACRO lens. I am finding this combination very rewarding for macro pictures.
