I know you’re busy so I tried to figure this out without bugging you (hee hee) but I was unable to identify this thing. When I found this, it was dead so maybe it’s a dragonfly who’s abdomen exploded and dried up?

Hi Teresa,
Because of the distinctive wing markings, your Dragonfly is one of the members of the genus
Tramea which are commonly called Saddlebags.  You can read more about Saddlebags on BugGuide.

Fantastic, thanks so much!
