Peter Baye found this pair mating on his deck near Annapolis in early October. Seems late to be mating, but who am I to judge!

Here is a photo taken by Robert Scarola to show you what they look like with wings extended.


Thanks to Peter and Robert for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
