Calico Pennant dragonflies (females)
Several Calico Pennant dragonflies (Celithemis elisa) were spotted at Painted Turtle Pond, Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge (OBNWR), Prince William County, Virginia USA.
All of these individuals are females, as indicated by their coloration and terminal appendages.
In my opinion, female Calico Pennants are one of the more beautiful dragonflies found in the mid-Atlantic United States.
