A Variety

This is the same dragonfly from a previous  in-flight shot  At that time I thought it was a Calico pennant. Based on comments from readers I now believe it to be a Halloween pennant. 
 I think dragonfly wings are so unique!

This Male Red-winged Blackbird was very cooperative and perched where I could get a decent shot off. 
 One of the few birds I can ID without a problem :)

What beautiful wings on both. I haven't seen nearly as many red wing blackbirds this spring as usual.

I encountered two red winged blackbirds recently. Didn't have my camera. That'll teach me to bring it with me all the time!

Beautiful Kerri, I missed the 'in flight' post .. just saw through the link in this post. Awesome! I will have to refer back to your dragon fly posts when trying to identify some recent dragonfly sightings in my area.

This was always one of my favorite birds to see when we lived in Louisiana. I hardly ever see them now.

So lovely, these images, and I'm reminded of the Red Wing who visits from the lake on occasion to sing in my trees. :)
