Humph. I was so excited to find a new lifer butterfly fluttering around the Lantana in my yard, then just as My camera was coming into focus, this little Green Anole swooped in and made a meal out of it!

still working on the ID of this hopper. Quite large, perhaps 3 inches long, and a strong flier.
On window screen at night, all over neighbor's Kidneywood during the day.
_MG_3102 I was surprised today to see this I thought at first it was a dobsonfly but it looks like an ant lion as it has no mandibles and the short antennae, I see ant lions here fairly often but they are normally an 1-1.5 inches long this one is nearly the same length as a green darner, For reference the fibers you can see wove in this panel run around 4-5 per inch any ID help, My estimate this one to be over 3 inches long and I have never seen one this large before.
John Abbott confirmed the ID for me today
