Rambur's Forktail
Week 48

Same damsel that I posted last week. I wasn't able to find any odes this past weekend. Well, actually there were a couple fliers, but none that I could get a pic of =(

Rambur's Forktail
Week 47

The first one I processed where I couldn't find an ID =(
Found this little guy hanging out on a bush trying to get warm. I let it climb onto my finger for a little heat and a photo shoot.

If anyone can identify it, I'd love to give it a name. Southwest US for the region.

Unfortunately no. Was more excited that I found one. I do have some side profile shots, but none of the abdomen pattern or wing venation =/ It's something that I'll have to remember to do next time to make ID'ing them easier.

I thought at first it might be a Rambur's Forktail since they are common in this area, but the body pattern doesn't match. It may be another type of forktail though.

Yellowtail Nightmare Roll

Not sure why it's named that but it had a kick to it. Shrimp tempura inside topped with Yellowtail and a jalepeno.

Jumping Spider

A saltie that I seem to have forgotten to process. This one wanted to be on my background paper so I just went with it.

+Grace Monte de Ramos - That's cool to know. I'm sure I had some of that at one point when I was there.

Rambur's Forktail
Week 46

The odes are starting to show up over here =) Found this one over the weekend and played a little cat and mouse for probably over 10 mins to get a shot. I didn't see any other odes that weekend.
