I want to say it is a male red saddlebags but the saddlebags are missing. No dot for a dotwing either so I'm not sure what it is. White Rock lake, Winfrey point

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

looks like
Wandering glider

 
nice, that looks right
No wonder I didn't recognize it, I've never seen one of those before. hmmm, not sure on gender, don't see the apical brown patch of male so female?

 
sex
I have trouble telling sexes apart in Pantala. My guess is female but perhaps someone else can be more ceratin.
