Unicorn Clubtail? - Gomphurus fraternus

Unicorn Clubtail? - Gomphurus fraternus
Lansing, Ingham County, Michigan, USA
June 5, 2011
When this guy first flitted by me and landed it had its wings out in typical dragonfly form. However, it quickly pulled them together, as pictured, which I have never seen. It looks like it has the markings of a unicorn clubtail, but its grey, not blue, eyes do not correspond to any unicorn photos I have seen.

collect some odes for Eaton & Ingham Counties
Eaton County has very little data for odonata and Ingham County has primarily old records. It's one of the most underrepresented counties in the lower MI.
