Pintailed Pondhawk - Erythemis plebeja - male

Pintailed Pondhawk - Erythemis plebeja - Male
McAllen - McAllen Nature Center, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA
April 9, 2006
Unfortunately this was the only picture I was able to get. I know it's not a good angle for identification but the field marks match Pintail Pondhawk. I saw it at the McAllen Nature Center in McAllen Texas right by the parking lot.

We would agree
with Erythemis plebeja - Pin-tailed Pondhawk. Even from this angle, don't know what else it could be!

That's great.
