    When I was doing wild bee research in Arkansas I had ample time to get out exploring and collecting. I took great interest in the regions' Hymenoptera and Odonata. The day this pic was taken I was out for Damselflies and when I found someplace to sit and observe I had this wonderful turtle show up and keep me company. This was when I was collecting in NW Arkansas. DSC00553.JPG

    Did you ever see Coelioxys dolichos when you were collecting there?

    I don't recall seeing them, I don't think I saw any Ceolioxys sp.
