Checkered Setwing

On our last afternoon in Texas, 12 August 2018, we briefly explored the Knob Hill Bike Path in Denton County. In a opening in the dry brush, we found a lovely, small, yellow-spotted dragonfly making sorties from piles of brush, a behavior typical for the species. The black patches in this Checkered Setwing are the key to its identification. Checkered Setwings are found in Texas,  the Southwest and adjacent Mexico.
