It's a good life.
I love this. Vertical surfaces!That was a gray petaltail, but apparently there are a number of dragonflies that love to perch on vertical surfaces, and also find people attractive because of that.Nice darner! I've only seen one.
Sweet baby!! I have a fascination for dragonflies, but find it difficult to sort through and remember all the details. This was fun. I checked out Wayne's links then went on to my own books - no gray petaltails listed for Cape Breton that I can find reference to (not much out there to reference for CB). Great photos! ~karen
Great shots! This species only shows up rarely here, and only well east of my location. So I've never seen one before.
wayne,I've never seen a gray petaltail, though they do occur in the state. The darners are abundant here however.karen,Next to frogs, dragonflies are my favorite critters. The little dears can be a challenge to ID though...jason,I bet you get a nice assortment of dragons down your way.
The Gray Petaltail shows up here every few years, usually I find one on the wood fence or hail railing to the deck. Certainly they are here all the time, just we don't see them.
