Truly magnificent !
I have never seen such an insect before.

What a fascinating observation! This is certainly a wannabe damselfly. Bugguide shows another species B. abdominalis and I am not confident that it is either of these species.

What a beautiful spotting! If I have a few extra minutes, I'll try to dig around and attempt to get this down to genus.
