Black Saddlebags Dragonfly

This is a Black Saddlebags dragonfly and I think it is pretty cool looking. "Black saddlebags, although fairly common, are striking insects. The hind wings are long and wide, with irridescent black bands on the parts of the wings closest to the body. This gives them their common name "black saddlebags," because the black patches make them look like they're wearing saddlebags. The rest of the wing is clear." SeEtta
