Image 2 shows an American Lady on the left and a Painted Lady on the right.
@dhend9 @ericisley and I went to Bastrop County today and met up with @ncowey at McKinney Roughs Nature Park where Nick works.

The park is owned and managed by the L.C.R.A. (Lower Colorado River Authority). Nick was very gracious and gave us a good tour of the park and we found a bunch of things to iNat as well as a new odonate or two for the park.
