Last weekend, we spent a night in Rocksprings so we could see the bats. You know, the Mexican-freetailed bats that roost at the Devil's Sinkhole State Natural Area. If you haven't been, GO. And hurry..the bats will be gone for the winter by October. Watching them spiral out of the cave by the millions and millions is an aswesome sight to behold!
Anyway, as we were packing up to leave, I spotted an interesting insect on an exterior wall of the Historic Rocksprings Hotel, where we stayed. Owlfly? I wasn't sure. So I snapped some shots. Back home, the experts at Bugguide.net confirmed that this is antlion adult, specifically Vella fallax. Cool!
