I didn't know it was a female spreadwing. How can you tell?

I'm too busy to follow up on ID'ing it. G's elementary school graduation is this week. But if you want to pass it along to the TexOdes list I'd be ever so grateful. :-)

I took it on my land.

It's a spreadwing damselfly because it has a damselfly body but its wings are sort of dangling--spread some, but not out and flat like a dragonfly (which has a more robust body and head, anyway.)

It's a female because it doesn't have the secondary sexual "bump" on the bottom back of its thorax that males have...though I could miss that (have before...) Also, it's colored like a female, though teneral (just become adult) males do not acquire their full coloration for awhile, sometimes days. But I will ask people on the list to take a look at it.
