Blue-ringed Dancer

Blue-winged Dancers are found across most the the southern United States and south into Mexico. Erika and I found this one near its preferred habitat, a vegetation-edged stream running through San Marcos, Texas. Paulson writes that wide habitat tolerance contributes to its being relatively common and widespread. Keys to the identification of this damselfly include its mostly black body and blue rings and abdomen tip.
