A local ID
I checked with a local Ode expert and he assures me that these are Uhler's Sundragons. Sely's have never been reported in my area. Thanks for your help gentlemen.

maybe not
Perhaps Selys' Sundragon see my comparision photo on my nature blog at http://rlephoto.com/pblog/index.php?d=30&m=05&y=07&category=4

Frankly
It looks more like a Selys which would be a range stretch. You also have several Emerald species up there to contend with that I have never seen. A flatter angle on the wings would help.
