Hey, thanks a lot for the ID.
And you know, I looked at the sawfly larvae when I was searching for it, but they had black heads and different patterns, or were a different color all together. But its not impossible, I probably just looked at the wrong species.

Hello BennJamin, I believe what you have here is a female Eastern Pondhawk, not the green darner. Compare these two BugGuide links:

Green Darner:

Eastern Pondhawk (Female):

Enjoy!

Also, about the caterpillar you were trying to help me out the other day, it was not even a caterpillar! In fact, it was a type of wasp, known as a sawfly. BugGuide is still trying to find a specific ID! No wonder why we could not find the moth or butterfly ID for it...lol!
