I went out to the area pond today and snapped two kinds of Dragonflies.

I'll call #1 and #2 the black dragonfly.

#3, #4, and $5 are the yellow dragonfly

Hope someone knows what they are.

Looks like a slaty skimmer - http://www.pbase.com/rcm1840/image/115780454 and an eastern amberwing - http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_x29Pef-T4FQ/TIDlWkBItRI/AAAAAAAASoM/n_5VfJx-rx4/s1600/MN09+eastern+amberwing+509_4200.jpg

It must be a female Slaty. I was looking for the "boot". I noticed that males have the "boot" in the hind wing. I didn't know females did not have the "boot" - that's what confused me.

Yep, Eastern Amberwing
