Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA October 6, 2010 Size: 3"
I'm pretty sure that this is a shadow darner, but I'm curious whether it's male or female. Also wondering what the appendage dangling from the tail might be, and what the brown spot on the right eye is about. In any case, I'd love a confirmation of the i.d. Thanks!
