These two shots were taken with my larger camera and show the color a little more accurately. 
What I don't understand about this dragonfly are the triangular-shaped sections of the
bottom wings that are closest to the body.  I haven't seen these before and the color
 contrast really stands out.  The photos below, taken with a different camera
with a flash, show it a little closer up. Carol Davis 6-30-2010

weird dragonfly wings
When I was looking at the area without the camera, those sections stood out
vividly and were a light, almost white, color (I have circled them in yellow in the
above photo).  I wonder if anyone knows what kind of dragonfly this is
?
Maybe the whitish areas become more transparent as the dragonfly
matures.
