Alpine red stuff

I'm still struggling to learn the dragonflies and damselflies. I bought 2 new books about them besides the one I already had. The new books are very helpful. Our ponds here were quite active this afternoon and I took many photos. Still working on IDing them but here is my favorite. It's a Desert Firetail (damselfly).

For the last three years or so I've been trying to grow Tran-Pecos Morning Glory. Finally, this year we have a nice vine of the lovely red tubulars flowers. Eventually, I hope to get it growing at the oasis. I tried last year but with the record heat and record drought it only made a couple of blooms, then died. I also might try the Coral Vine again.
