Common Whitetail Dragonfly, female

Plathemis lydia


Common Whitetail dragonfly resting in a potted plant


Rural deciduous area, Clermont County


This poor girl was stuck in an abandoned spiderweb. Luckily, I was able to carefully pull all the silk strands from her wings, and after a brief rest on a potted plant, she took off into the trees.
