I present to you: the largest dragonfly in the world, featuring my face for size comparison! :P Photos simply don't convey its sheer size and bulk but hopefully having something for comparison helps.

Anyway, story time! This guy was flying around erratically for at least an hour and a half since we arrived - I assume due to the missing wing half. I hadn't seen it myself but a couple of my friends had, and it somehow hit me in the side of the head and quickly flew off. :P
Anyway, while we were all chilling around the river, it decided to fly straight into the waterfall (in the background in pic 3) and was promptly swept downstream. What else could I do?? I jumped in and chased after it! 😂
As you can tell from the photos, my swim was successful, and I ended up with the most enormous dragonfly I have ever seen right before me. :P I can't even properly describe how enormously huge it was. And those amazing cerci! I gave it some time to dry off, but being humid tropical Queensland, it wasn't happening very quickly. It was more than happy to sit on my hand and so I wondered if it would prefer somewhere a bit higher and drier :P
So that is how it ended up on my face! As it dried and we were plagued by march flies, the obvious solution was to give him one to eat. He accepted it gratefully and somehow ate the entire thing in a single bite. Hopefully that goes a way into showing just how huge and formidable these guys are! Not content, he then sliced his huge mandibles into my nose -_- and had to be gently prized off. He slowly lapped up blood for a while after but luckily didn't do any more biting! If I squint in the mirror I can still see a faint line there now :P
He sat for about an hour before we had to leave and I left him on a shrub. I hope he was okay with half a wing missing, but there wasn't much else I could do. All in all one of the best experiences of my life! :D

First photo is by Haley Harding because I am incapable of taking selfies :P

Description

Reared from Prunus serotina. Found as larvae making the later discussed cone-shaped tentiform mines on 5/14. These larvae were assumed to have made lower surface blotch mines (also discussed below) prior to creating the tentiform mines, photos of those are added. Both the lower surface leaf mines (which were all vacated when they were found) and tentiform mines were found on the same branch on one tree, and only one other similar underside blotch mine with succeeding tentiform mine was found in the park (see twelfth photo, red arrows indicate lower surface mines and blue arrows indicate tentiform mines). The lower surface mines started at or near the apex of the leaf, and began as serpentine linear mines on the lower surface of the leaves (see images four to seven). This then expanded into a blotch that sometimes spanned the space between the midrib and margin and was almost always touching the midrib. Both the blotch and serpentine portions were white and puffy (see eleventh photo). Two mines where the linear portion ran along the leaf margin caused the leaf to slightly fold over where the mine ran. When the tissue was removed to look inside the blotch portion of the mines, there were strips of frass pellets that show that the larva likely created the blotch by mining in longitudinal sweeps, and eventually towards the end of the final sweep in the mine the larva goes from being a lower surface miner to making some of the blotch full depth (photos four to six). At this full depth portion, the larva deposits all frass in a corner of the mine (the aforementioned line of frass stops before this portion of the mine and there is frass in a corner, so it is assumed that all the frass at the full depth portion is put there). To reiterate, these mines were found empty but based on descriptions of other Caloptilia larvae I have reason to suspect these may have been made by the same larvae. The tentiform shelters that the larvae were observed to have made are created by the larva first cutting the leaf in a line approximately perpendicular to the midrib about two thirds of the way from the base of the leaf to the apex (see eighth and tenth photos). The rest of the leaf is then folded into a cone with all edges sealed tightly from the inside. The portion of the leaf that gets cut off at the start is kept inside the cone and is eaten. Frass is deposited along a suspended strip of silk which seems to hold it together (see tenth photo). After finishing eating the initial cut-off piece of the leaf, the larva then begins to window mine the rest of the leaf making up the cone (see eighth photo). Eventually the larva eats a hole in the cone and exits to spin its cocoon. The larvae both exited and did not incorporate the leaves in the container, they went to the rounded “corners” (they’re not really corners, the containers are cylindrical with rounded edges) and spun a two-layered cocoon (see third photo). This individual pupated on 5/16. Each layer was a thick, ovoid mat, the second inner one being the thicker of the two. Based on descriptions of Caloptilia larvae, the lower surface leaf mines might be primary leaf mines and the tentiform mines may be secondary mines. This would also explain why these two types of mines were only found grouped together when found. When emerging from the cocoon, the pupa is thrust entirely out of the chamber. This individual eclosed today, 6/3.

This fly is a major pest in the Rio Grande Valley. USDA APHIS is working to control them by releasing sterile flies. To easily determine when a sterile one is caught in a trap, they are marked with a UV dye. I found three on the same bush tonight and all of them glowed. I was told they are dyed as pupae and the color is determined by the area of release. I guess the color for our area is pink.
