****UPDATE was able to find out that this is a Pond Hawk Dragonfly.
Yesterday before the storm hit I took a brief walk at the lake by my job and found this dragonfly.
I do not know what type it is so if someone knows please let me know.
Thanks for visiting!
All comments welcome.
Lunch time view on two different occasions. The first image was taken the on the 5th of June and the other two images were taken on the 2nd of July.
I remember as a child my mother would go down to the local lake and cut these to have in the house. They would last forever.
