|Dragonfly with antennas |
I could say that never to have done a dragonfly before with butterfly antennas, but days me to do a dragonfly with antennas in a drawing and me to think that the painter not to know on dragonflies but today's day has checked that me to be mistaken.
This dragonfly to arrive tonight, to enter for the door of the house and to fall on the paper bond of squares where my brother to be making the task of the school, me to think that her to be dead but after some minutes she left flying.
Sorry for the bottom of the image, it is not the best thing to capture their details, I neither eat they are the conditions of illumination, me to be absent for a lot of time in TN and to be several days without photographing, because of being busy with things of the work.
I will thank a lot if some of you could supplement my information on this species. Cordial greetings and a great hug for all my friends of TN
My best desires for a Happy week beginning

Muy bonita composicion y los detalles y colores son muy buenos.
Es un gusto compartir este espacio contigo nuevamente.La foto me parece es e un Neuroptero denominado hormiga leon vulgarmente, aunque no tiene ninguna relacion con esa familia.La larva hace cuevas en la arena en forma de embudo y tira granos de la misma a lo insectos que caen alli, hasta que lo atrapa con sus mandibulas delgadas y agudas que perforan el cuerpo de la presa y los devora
