Glad I'm not a tiny critter

Glad I'm not a tiny critter
Dallas, Denton County, Texas, USA
March 31, 2009
Size: 8mm
I have no idea what this is. It was originally working a dandylion in the back yard. I took some pictures and then let it crawl on my hand and transferred it to a retaining wall in the front yard for more pics. To my surprise, it joined another of its kind in a "feast".

Holy cats, that was fast!
Wow, that was fast! I think you nailed it. Looks almost exactly the same. I had no clue where to even begin to look here on the guide.

Thanks for the help!
