Moved from ID Request. I've seen enough of Valerie's work to be satisfied that she knows what she's talking about. She has a page illustrating and describing this species here.
Incidentally, she is also a BugGuide contributor.

 
Thanks!
That's good to know!

I submitted this to the author of this website: http://www.austinbug.com/lepidoptera.html (her name is Valerie, but I don't know anything more about her!) and she identified it as a Plateau Damsel. I believe it is the same as my other image, #283596. Any thoughts?
