Epitheca princeps (♂) – lateral
$8 – $40
Here's a lateral shot of the male Epitheca princeps in a characteristic perching position, hanging vertically from a branch. Unlike many species in the area, this one can often be seen with its abdomen curved outward a bit while perched, sometimes resembling the letter “j”.
The male is overall a dull brown with brilliant iridescent green to greenish-blue eyes. Despite the obvious view in this shot, they are often extremely camouflaged and sit perfectly motionless, barely detectable even when they are just feet in front of you.
