Familiar Bluet Enallagma cevile

Caribbean Yellowface Neoerythromma cultellatum

Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park
Mission, (Hidalgo Co), TX

The Bluet is very common; the Caribbean Yellowface is something of a target species for a lot of Ododphiles - in the U.S, it's found only in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.  Although something of a "newbie" to the world of Odes, and especially damselflies, I've been fortunate to see them on a number of ocassions.
