    Tracy the only species in Europe that resembles yours is the Somatochlora flavomaculata. Greg Lasley has a great site on north American odonata ( http://www.greglasley.net/dragonnoramerix.html ) you should be able to find you specimen there Remember the one in your photo is a youngster and may not have the same colouring as an adult.

  • Thank you Robert ! I will use that sight as a guide from now on. I really appreciate all that info!! ;]
