Band-winged Dragonlet
Erythrodiplax umbrata
The Band-winged Dragonlet (Erythrodiplax umbrata) is a medium sized dragonfly which occurs in the U.S. mainly in Texas and south Florida. The image shown here was shot in June, 2003, in Burnet Co., Texas with a Canon EOS 10D and EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS lens with a 2X extender and 550 EX flash.
The perfect confusing dragonfly might be a young Band-winged Dragonlet which does not look much like the adult. This one was photographed in Starr Co., Texas in November, 2003, with a Canon EOS 10D and an EF 70-200 mm F/2.8 L IS lens with a 2X extender and flash.
The Band-winged Dragonlet shown here was at Santa Ana N.W.R., Hidalgo Co., Texas, in October, 2004. This image was taken with a Canon EOD 1D Mark II and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and 550 flash.
Here are two more shots of the perfect "confusing dragonfly" since as immatures, the Band-winged Dragonlet does not appear to look like the adult. The one shown here was at Lockhart, Caldwell Co., Texas, in August, 2007. This image was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender. The next shot, also from August, 2007, was taken in Lewisville, Denton Co., Texas with the same gear.
The adult below was near Millwood Lake in the Saline River bottomlands in Howard Co., Arkansas. It was photographed with the same equipment as the two shots just above. This represented the 1st record for Howard County, Arkansas.
The young male Band-winged Dragonlet shown here was near Mission, Hidalgo Co., Texas, in April, 2008. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender.
The female Band-winged Dragonlet shown here was at Santa Ana N.W.R., Hidalgo Co., Texas, in October 2008. This image was taken with the same gear as the shot just previous.
The male Band-winged Dragonlet shown here was at Santa Ana N.W.R., Hidalgo Co., Texas, in May, 2009. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 50D and an EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash.
