Halloween Pennant Dragonfly - male (a.k.a. Brown-Spotted Yellow-wing)
Celithemis eponina / Odonata

This is a comical little dragonfly, I enjoyed seeing the way it perched on the aquatic plants. One of the nice habits of dragonflies is that they are highly territorial and often return to their original perch. I found that if one flew away before I took a photo, if I waited long enough, it would come back.
