Thanks to you all for really nice comments. And, Ali, this was taken outside in the meadow at Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. These insects are really hard to see and I was so lucky to spot this one.

I once had the privilege to admire one of these from underneath when it was resting on the door screen and I was only inches away. Fascinating.
