A Halloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina) and its “shadow” on the beach at Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key, Florida, on Feb. 14, 2017. Not until I saw this did I imagine that the wings of a dragonfly, with the sun just right, might project like celluloid.

So, in real life, this was no digital dragonfly. It was like an old motion picture.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
