Seeing as there have been a few unknown dragonfly pics here...and now solved, I thought I'd see if anyone recognizes this species. I've seen them in two different areas and in both cases, they were doing the nasty...must be something in the air. I felt like a voyeur when I took the picture!

Well I don't know what it is in the air, could be the water?

Here's a site with lots of links and pics which may or may not be useful!

That's what I thought they were but mine don't have the white face that my guides show them to have. Based on your links, at least two pic don't show the white face either, so I guess there must be variation in whether the face is white or not. Thanks for confirming the ID!
