Description

~6cm length. Saw this guy on one of our tomato cages in the garden. It actually stayed there while I went back in the house and got my camera, switched lenses and added strobes. It flew off but came right back several times, unusually cooperative for a dragonfly.ID confirmed by Nick Block @ BugGuide.
