August 23, 2018

Location: Durham, NC, Museum of Life and Science

I am a Common Whitetail Dragonfly
I live near water and patrol my habitat.
You know I'm male cause I have a white tail,
And I can mate in 3 seconds flat.

(This dragonfly was wild, on the grounds of the museum, not captive in the museum.)

Thanks to the folks on the Antman's Hill facebook page for the ID help!
