 Eastern Amberwings - Perithemis tenera

Eastern Amberwings - Perithemis tenera

June 3, 2011
Size: maybe 2 inches
These two landed on some grass next to the pond. There were several darting around the area, but these were the only two mating. It would also be nice to know which is male and which is female. Thanks.
