I believe these are D. properans in Florida. Though they are definitely variable. They are not the other available species and too strongly marked for D salutans until somebody studies them better and says this is a possible D salutans level of striping.

The shots of the dragonfly and robberfly should not have been linked together. I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of unlinking them. However, not making this move very often, I forgot that the unlink option unlinks ALL of the pictures-not just one from the rest. The two robbers and the two dragonfly shots SHOULD be linked together since they were the same individual. Sorry about that, maybe someone who knows how to do it can link the two images back to their respective mates. This reminds me a little of Diogmites, by the way. You'll want to wait for someone more experienced with robberflies, though.

Thanks, I don't know how to do all of this yet. I do appreciate any help I can get.

Linking, etc.
Patsy, when you get a chance, check the Help tab for easy instructions on most everything you'll ever need to do here.

I figured it out. Don't disregard the ID, that might start you in the right place. In fact, you could look in the guide here
