Halloween Pennant

The Halloween Pennant Dragonfly gets its name from its orange and black Halloween colors. The Pennant refers to its habit of perching on the top of tall grass or reeds where it can be seen swaying in the wind like a pennant. Halloween pennants prey on small flying insects.

October has Halloween on the 31st. The Pennant winners of the American and National League Baseball teams play in the World Series. However, the season for Adult Halloween Pennants rarely extends beyond early October.
