Description

Not quite sure what I have here. I think this is the first time I've observed a dragonfly with it's abdomen curved upwards. It was very early morning and the light so low I was lucky to capture even these images.

Any suggestions as to the ID would be greatly appreciated.

Spot-winged Glider (Pantala hymenaea)

7 August 2015: Observed the almost entirely well-preserved exoskeleton of a Band-winged Glider (Pantala hymenaea) that had already been cleaned out by the ants at the bird-banding area of the Lake Lewisville Environmental Learning Area (LLELA). One can still make out the key features which lead to identifying the species including the dark spots in the basal area of the hind wings and the peculiar markings of its abdomen's dorsal side. LLELA is administered jointly by the US Army Corps of Engineers, the City of Lewisville, Texas, and the University of North Texas.
