In our back yard on a Knock-out rose bush: a “spreadwing.” The spreadwings form the small family Lestidae with only two genera; this one is from the genus “Lestes,” which contains more than a dozen species. Still awaiting a species ID (if possible) at

Submitted to BugGuide, but ID'ed only to genus Lestes (in the spreadwings family, Lestidae).
