Came across this photo of GREG LASLEY, one of my favorite iNat folks, and HAD to include as an observation. Realizing it may be "frivolous" info to some, I want to document how much help he has been to me and so many iNaturalists.

GREG LASLEY went above and beyond to fulfill his promise to speak to my Texas Master Naturalist chapter in Milam County, Texas on this date. This photo of GREG LASLEY was taken in Rockdale,Texas, while he was sharing his observations, experiences, and photographic skills with my El Camino Real Texas Master Naturalist Chapter.

Thanks, again, Greg.

The 'Beaver Ponds' in the Angelina National Forest.

Lifer!

One of two females seen flying in this area today. Both were hunting with brief flights away from tree trunks and then returning; much the same way that a Gray Petaltail does, but more frequently.

I had no idea this Darner would be so small. It seems that the body outline in Dragonflies of Texas (Abbott) is scaled incorrectly. This is a very small Darner!

Update: Following an email conversation with Mike Moore @mike_moore and John Abbott @jcabbott, both have confirmed that this is now the first record of G. antilope in TX. A second record came only a week later (link below), and confirms that this species does actually occur in TX. Previously, the closest observations to TX were in western Louisiana.

To summarize from the several sources John and Mike have provided, here are the primary differences for distinguishing between G. furcillata (Harlequin Darner) and G. antilope (Taper-tailed Darner), with the very informative links included at the bottom:

G. furcillata vs. G. antilope

  • Females only: no sideways '7' on S2 vs. sideways '7' on S2 (clearly visible on this individual).
  • Females only: amber beyond/distal to nodus rather than at or near nodus.
  • Distal cells between veins M2 and Rs at end of hind wing form double cells for ~10 cells vs. ~2-3 cells.
  • Usually 2-3 bridge veins in hindwing triangle vs. single bridge vein in hindwing triangle.
  • No mid-dorsal orange spots on S2-3 vs. mid-dorsal orange spots on S2-3 and sometimes S4.
  • Males only: downward curved appendages vs. straight appendages.

This just goes to show that you never know what you will find when you least expect it! :-)

Thanks very much, Mike and John, for all your help and patience. I really appreciate it!

@greglasley @briangooding @tdavenport @williamedwards @zvkemp @ericisley @gnat79 I'm guessing you all will find this interesting.

I'm holding the intact shed skin of a Western Coachwhip which was resident (and frequentlly seen) under this ranch house in Coleman County. I'm 5' 8" (in boots) so the shed skin is something on the order of 6.5 ft long.
My (former) parents-in-law originally had some trepidation about the presence of the snake until I told them how good it was at catching mice and rats. Thereafter the snake became something of a "welcomed guest" or mascot.
