This is what they have me look at: http://southwestdragonflies.net/damsels/...
It may not cover Texas but some of the species overlap.

Usually when it's cold their color can be affected. But since it's warm I can't be sure. Most of the times the blue is under. But you can get more info from the groups. Bluets have their wings folded closer to the body. Dancers sit above the body. Then there are more like the spread wings which you can figure why. I am not an expert but I am learning from my group.

Thank you for the information, Jellis. I didn't know their appearance could be affected by the weather. I'll check out the groups.

Well they both look like Bluets. But they could be female or affected by weather. With so little blue it's hard to tell. If you are on Facebook they do have some Texas Odonata groups.
