I had been in awe of beetles like this ever since I saw them in a museum tray many years ago, but suffice it to say that when I encountered this one in the field for the first time, it was..."glorious"!

Group of Brachymesia gravida

This is no multiple exposure, digital quackery or any such sorcery. I took a break from my sullen and soulless responsibilities to explore the checkerboard array of ephemeral ponds at a water reclamation site.

By far Brachymesia gravida was the most prolific anisopteran species, outnumbering its nearest competitor by probably 50:1. I'm not a mathematician but I was shooting a 150mm lens on a 1.5 crop sensor at between 1-2 meters...so whatever the dimensions are for this field-of-view, this vantage could be multiplied the length of at least two of the ponds which had the highest density (and smelled the worst). I guess you'd have to add more vertical room too. There were literally hundreds if their numbers did indeed not break one thousand.

It was amazing to take a step and watch a cloud of Pennants ascend and waver before softly returning to their perches.

Not a clue on this thing! Image 3 shows one just as it was taking off. That one is missing an antenna. I don't think I have seen this before, but last evening there were 5 or 6 of these that showed up.
