Cobra Clubtail head-tilts

Regular readers of my photoblog know I’m fond of head-tilts in which the dragonfly seems to display some of its personality, especially when the individual is looking at me. Like the following female Cobra Clubtail dragonfly (Gomphus vastus), who I imagine is thinking “Take a picture. It will last longer.”

In the next photo, another female has turned her head nearly upside-down. OK, that’s just crazy looking! It reminds me of the movie The Exorcist (1973).

The male in the last photo is probably thinking “Hey buddy, enough with the bright flashes of light!”
