Calico Pennant

I've been looking all over for this fella and finally found him in the swamp resting on this twig while guarding his territory. I love the way the red spots on his back look like hearts. He is really showy and I posted him first so he wouldn't upstage the more subdued one earlier-this is one of favorite dragonflies I was so happy to find him!! This was taken at Finzel Swamp in Western MD.
