Common Baskettail Dragonfly At Fort Hill On Cape Cod


“The Common Baskettail is a medium-sized, dull brown dragonfly with a series of yellow-orange lateral spots on its stout abdomen. Many individuals have a large brown triangular spot at the base of each hindwing; however, the wings may be clear.”

I saw this Common Baskettail Dragon on one of the trails at Fort Hill in Eastham. I had never photographed one before. I love his little face.

What do you think?

  1. Love the face, especially the googly eyes; love the wings position.
    Do you think he’s resting or waiting to be cleared for takeoff? 🙂
