Checkered Setwing
Dythemis fugax
The Checkered Setwing (Dythemis fugax) occurs in the U.S, mainly in Texas and Oklahoma. The first two shots here were digital captures in Austin, Travis Co., Texas in May, 2003, and were shot with a Canon EOS 10D and EF 300 mm F4 L IS lens with a 1.4 extender and 550 EX flash. The next shot is of a male with a bright red face and was shot with the same equipment in Lost Canyon, Real Co., Texas in May, 2003. Mature males with such a face look like a little red light bulb as they fly around a small pond!
