Cool fact! Some dragonflies signal ownership with striking colours on face, abdomen, legs or wings. The common whitetail (Plathemis lydia) dashes towards an intruder holding its white abdomen aloft like a flag. Other dragonflies engage in aerial dogfights or high speed chases. Any female will need to mate with the territory holder before laying her eggs.

Aristida spiciformis, Bottlebrush threeawn.  The word awn (had to look this one up) is a noun. An awn is a stiff bristle, especially one of those growing from the ear or flower of barley, rye, and many grasses. Shot in a South Florida meadow, at dusk, on my belly under the grass, 2014.
