Gray Petaltail Dragonfly (Tachopteryx thoreyi)
OP: September 20, 2017, 11:48:44 AM
Came across this fellow in Watkins Glen State Park (NY).  A Gray Petaltail Dragonfly.  The body is about 3" long. 

Interestingly - this is one dragonfly we as fly fishers may not care about.  The Larva/Nymphs do not need standing water to develop.  They survive in mud or seepage areas on steep gorge faces.
