Ozark Clubtail Gomphus ozarkensis

Essentially an Arkansas and Missouri Gomphid with some spillover into Oklahoma. This is one of the clubtails with yellow spot patterns on the "tail." Strongly yellow and black-brown striped forward. Loves creeks and the open areas nearby. Often gathers on rocky creeks with many found perching on the dry stones in any given area. Appear to have small territories. Have had them use my hat for a perch when I sat in good streamside promontories. This female has not reached full color.
