More inverts

I just got an email back from Herschel Rainey, one of our excellent Arkansas Naturalists, and the Author of "Snowmelt Timberdoodles", a collection of natural history essays that I found entrancing. Anyway, I'd sent him some questions about a couple of insects I'd seen at Leatherwood. So, a large dark blue Dragonfly is a Great Blue Skimmer, larger than the very common and paler blue Pondhawk, and a great wasp with no common name, a Pelucinid. This thing is really striking, and at first I'd thought a kind of Dragonfly, but couldn't find anything in the book vaguely like it.
