Glad I "stalked" this one around in the meadow a while to get it's photo. Never saw wings open, but each time it moved/landed it tilted to one side to show off it's beautiful "eyes". Very fun first sighting. Only saw this one.

It was in the middle of the trail & in bad shape (but still alive) from predation. Was gone when we came back through, a couple hours later.
