Guest Dragonfly at our Pond

Kathy, my wife, found this Dragonfly around our pond while I was at work. We never saw one like this around our pond before. We get quite a few larger dragonflies that are just passing through, either just making a few passes, or some that stay for a little while. Every Spring we usually get a large Green Darner laying eggs in the pond, then leaves. We are not sure what kind this one is, but it looked interesting with the clear “glasslike” wings and orange amber body. Kathy shot this with a Canon EOS 1DMkIII, with a 24-105 f/4L lens @ 105mm. f/13, 1/40 sec, ISO 400. Cropped in somewhat.
