Oh Magoo, you’ve done it again!

I was happy to see an old friend recently at a remote location in Huntley Meadows Park. This individual is a male Great Spreadwing damselfly (Archilestes grandis), as indicated by its coloration and terminal appendages. His nickname is “Mr. Magoo.”

I nicknamed this male Great Spreadwing “Mr. Magoo” because of the prominent dark spots in his eyes. I spotted “Mr. Magoo” for the first time on 08 October 2015, and again on the 15th and 21st; 04 November was the last day I saw Magoo. Editor’s Note: Photos of Mr. Magoo taken on 21 October will be featured in an upcoming post.

    I enjoyed the double flashback–back to the warmer days of fall, when there were still lots of dragonflies and damselflies and even further back to the cartoons of my childhood. Your wonderful images remind me how spectacular the Great Spreadwings really are.

    The Great Spreadwing are really amazing, or your photos are really amazing, probably both.
