Took these photos at Jamestown settlement this summer. Gorgeous dragonfly. Most dragonflies I see in Ohio don’t have this color. Wondering what this guy’s name is. Thanks for all the info and posts. I really enjoy visiting the website and learning new things about bugs.

Hi Curious,
We believe this is a Needham’s Skimmer, Libellula needhami, which can be found on BugGuide, but we wouldn’t rule out the possibility of it being the similar Golden Winged Skimmer, Libellula auripennis.
