Great Spreadwing damselfly (male)

The following Great Spreadwing damselfly (Archilestes grandis) was spotted on 20 October 2014 near a vernal pool in the forest at Huntley Meadows Park. This individual is a male, as indicated by its coloration, hamules, and terminal appendages.

With handsome azurite-colored eyes complemented by green and yellow racing stripes on their thorax, male Great Spreadwings are one of my favorite damselflies!
