Has the head and body looking like a dragonfly, rests with wings folded back and has antenna. Not a dragonfly, nor a damselfly.. crossbreed? :P
i know this dragonfly,they are so smelly
It's an Owlfly (Ascalaphidae), they are very closely related to the antlions.Be careful of it as it will bite. They still retain their aggressiveness even though they reached adulthood.
I learn something everyday, I thought the antlion larva was the adult!
wow - never heard of antlions before!
Well, that's just a guess. The one in your picture has almost butterfly-like antennae.
oh! its an antlion adult? i've never actually seen one.. until today! haha. thanks!
Four dragonfly-like wings and antennae? Antlion?
