This one was by far the most challenging to spot/rewarding to find because the dragonfly was perching high in a cedar tree where it was well camouflaged.This individual is a male, as indicated by the large russet-colored club at the end of his abdomen, and his terminal appendages. Notice the epiproct is a large “plate” that spans both cerci, as shown in the full-size version of the following photo. I love a good head-tilt, as shown in the next photo.
I like the way the coloration of the male Russet-tipped Clubtail complements the color palette of the background in all of the photos.Copyright © 2016 Walter Sanford. All rights reserved.
