Spot-winged Glider (Pantala hymenaea)
Photographed
My first ever! I never saw it perched and just managed a couple of identifiable flight shots. When I first saw it, I thought it was a glider but it seemed darker reddish-brown than orange. I thought I better get some pics b/c it could be something good and my suspicion was confirmed!
