Gray Petaltail

Tachopteryx thoreyi


A green and black dragonfly that was over 2" long. Clear wings.


This dragonfly was seenperched on a barbed-wire fence along a driveway in Southeastern Texas.


I had not seen the pose caught here. It reminds me of someone doing obeisances to something, with its wings folded down in front. Coo.
