Mantled baskettail - from South Carolina (Epitheca semiaquea)

Mantled baskettail - from South Carolina (Epitheca semiaquea)

Over the next month I'm going to post odes from Florida & South Carolina that I've never or rarely posted. Some will be good shots; others poor but of good species. Some, like Mantled baskettail, I've never seen in my home state of Georgia. They do fly here but farther south & more coastal than we explore. Can't wait till April!
