I found this dragonfly in my mother’s garden in Buxton, Maine USA. I looked through all the dragonfly posts you had on this site but could not find one that looked just like it. Can you identify the species? Thank you!

Hi Cheryl,
It seems whenever we attempt to identify a Dragonfly, someone writes in to correct us.  For some reason, Dragonflies are a real identification challenge for us.  We believe this is a Darner in the family Aeshnidae.  See BugGuide for the species possibilities.
