A Lightweight on a Heavyweight

Came upon this image while looking for blog material this morning. While photographing the dragonflies that I featured over the past few posts, I also came upon this Halloween Penant that was resting atop an Ironweed wildflower:

I always enjoy finding/photographing dragonflies and butterflies in the meadow, especially when they are on/around colorful wildflowers.
