I thought this might interest some of the entomologists on the forum. I was driving along in my van with the window down about 4 inches when this critter flew through the gap and hit me in the face. I wasn't sure what the heck it was as I was to busy trying to stay on the road but I knew it was a big insecty thing. Anyway I think it's a Southern Hawker Dragonfly female but I'm sure someone will verify this. Wonderful looking creature to say the least and I let it off down by the river near my house at which point it flew to over 50 feet in the air in a matter of seconds. I think it was love at first sight so I was sad to see her go.
