Eastern Pondhawk Dragonfly

As seen skimming over the still waters of the quarry pond on my trip to the Panhandle Trail yesterday. I always try to identify the species I photograph, and at first I thought this was a damselfly, a little smaller and more slender than the usual dragonflies I see there. But it turns out this was a male of the species, and interesting that I saw two of them sparring in the air a couple of times. The quarry pond is kept slightly moving with the aid of a windmill and in reading the description of this dragonfly the quiet water with floating vegetation seems to be the perfect habitat for them.
