Roseate Skimmer?  I saw this today on Hunting Island, all I can come up with is a roseate skimmer. But when I look it up, SC is not supposed to be in its range.  Anyone know dragonflies?   Thanks in advance 🙂

iNaturalist has a ton of sightings in SC of this.  I’m starting to try to load moths and other insects in there as it has a great AI for helping to ID your observations as you enter them.  Along with the human ID help.

@The Bird Nuts which lens for that great Blinded Sphinx pic?  I haven’t pulled the trigger on a macro yet, but looks like when I do a ring light may need to be part of it.  My moths tend to still have some blown out areas from on-camera flash and diffuser with kit lens.  

Actually, I'm just using my point-and-shoot for moth photography.  It's a Canon PowerShot SX50.  It has great macro.  I use an adapter ring and attach the ring light to that.
