Day 116: Halloween in July

“The Halloween pennant (Celithemis eponina) is a dragonfly found in North America, in the Pennant genus of dragonflies.The Halloween pennant has been described as looking very similar to a butterfly. Its wings are orange-yellow in color, though its markings are dark brown, not black as is commonly believed; the entirely orange-yellow wings with dark brown bands are what has given it its Halloween common name and its typical position of being perched at the tip of a weed stalk, waving in the breeze like a pennant contributes to the remainder of its common name.” (To read more about this dragonfly click here)
