July 30, 2013: Common Whitetail

Common Whitetail, 7/3/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
One of the common dragonflies found at the Park, the Common Whitetail spends a lot of time perching on the ground.  I usually flush a few from the Upland Trail, just west of the south trailhead.  The white abdomen on the male is quite distinctive.  Flight Season: May through October.
