Common Tigertail Dragonfly

Hi Chelsea,
We will post your image of a Dragonfly from Zimbabwe in the hopes that our readership will be able to assist in the identification.

Moments after posting, we received a comment that this is a Common Tigertail.  The Greg Lasley Nature Photography website indicates:  “The Common Thorntail (Ceratogomphus pictus) is a widespread dragonfly found throughout South Africa. Its range extends northward to the Congo and Zambia.”
