Thank you for your kind comments Marta, Antonio, Tom, Larry and Gilma!
Steve and Sandra, thank you very much for the correction, I will ensure the info is amended on Facebook too. As Hema has said, we are very happy to welcome you to the community!
Welcome to Project Noah, Steve. We are honored to have you !!
I should also mention the Sandra and I are both members of the Dragonfly Society of the Americas and I am the Past President of the Society.
Totally agree with Sandra Hunt-vonArb. A gomphidae for sure, not LIbellulidae. The shape of the nymph also has gomphidae written all over it. Gomphid nymphs are shaped very differently from libellulids. I'm not entirely sure of the species as color pattern will change as the adult matures. I'm guessing a Stylogomphus, but not positive.
Nice timing Karen. Congrats on SOTD!

Thank you so much. This is spotting of the year IMHO. Used to watch locusts emerge in Central Park. Nothing more magical. I love the suitcase he leaves behind. Phenomenal work. Thanks for sharing.
