„Red Saddlebags“

from the gallery of Pat Goltz

Found in Sweetwater Wetlands, southern Arizona, USA.

In copula. They actually flew together to this location, fastened in this manner. Dragonflies have the unusual characteristic that they are both facing the same direction when mating, and can fly together.

This species is difficult to photograph, in my opinion, because they usually like to perch up very high, where they are against the sky.

They are called "saddlebags" because the red area at the base of two wings resemble the saddlebags used on a horse.

Tramea onusta
