Forcipomyian parasize on female Sympetrum ambiguum

Very cool to see...I had never seen this type of odonate parasite in the area I currently live. Unfortunately I had other people with me on this walk who weren't as impressed so I settled for a few quick shots.

I was hoping to see it attempt to eat some lestids but I got sidetracked when a male Sympetrum ambiguum flew by.
