This was the only one of many that sat still long enough to get a photo! I'm guessing this is a male due to the strong iridescence on the wings.

sex identification
Females have a row of yellowish-white dots, males do not. Did you get a body shot??

Only photo
Sadly, this is the only photo I have of this specimen. Perhaps I should edit it to remove the sex identifier?
