      Note: No odonates have been listed for the Texas
      counties (Winkler, Ector, Midland, & Andrews) just to
      the south and east of Lea County. But, I espied on
      the topographical maps and in USGS aerial photographs
      some extensive wetlands in Monument Draw just to the
      east of the airport in Wink, Texas and Wink has two
      recently formed large sink holes that should be
      showing odonates. It would be interesting to make a
      quick run down through those counties.
