Can't see your pic (don't know why) but visited your gallery and saw your awesome macro shots. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice Jerry.
Wow, that is a very pretty Dragon.
Gold and greens go nice in this image
Beautiful shot. The dragonfly is very pretty. Awesome colors.
That is a spectacular dragonfly.
I think it is a Pennant. Celithemis amanda or Amanda's Pennant.
Beautiful shot, Jerry. I love the colors.
Do a Google search on Celithemis eponina and Celithemis amanda and you will see a difference. The Celithemis eponina (Brown-spotted Yellow-wing) has yellow wings, banded and spotted with brown and the Celithemis amanda (Amanda's Pennant) has clear wings with a fairly large multi-colored basal wing patch. Thanks for checking on the ID. I am trying to learn insect ID and can use all the help I can get.
Jerry, Is it a Halloween pennant?
Nice detail in the wings.
Holloween pennant is another common name for it. I used the common name of Brown-spotted Yellow-wing that is in the the National Audubon Society Field Guide. My Entomologist and Botanist friends recommend the use of scientific names to avoid the confusion of the common names which vary by locality.
I hate common names, but not everybody has the necessary knowledge to use them.
Thanks for correcting my ID. There are a lot of Odonata in the USA and sometimes I have a stab at them when nothing is posted.

The colors in the dragonfly are very close to the color in the leaves. Ain't nature wonderful!
That's just beautiful. I'm not a bug girl, but I had to take a peek at the dragonfly. TFS!
