Moved from Robber Flies.

 
I am attaching the rest
of these series so you can decide if they are redundant.

 
thank, Salvador -- at this point every shot is precious
...but please keep an eye out for them, hope you can add profile photos, capture both sexes, etc....

Way cool..! This is Saropogon
Way cool..! This is Saropogon nitidus (probably a male) -- new for BG.

 
Thank you Eric and Belov!
It makes my day every time I am told that my contribution is new to BG or new to Texas in BG. I appreciate your, time, attention and expertise. I know that I have at times abused the system by sending too many pictures at once (like yesterday August 10, 2015), but my hope is that the BG experts will find value in some of my photos here and there. Thanks again!
