White-faced Meadowhawk Dragonfly - Sympetrum obtrusum
That is exactly what it is! Thanks!
Beautiful and so strange they would name such a deep red dragonfly "White face". I see it has one but the red stands out so much it deserves a better name. Great shot on this too.
I would agree with you Geodialist. White-faced Meadowhawk is also my best guess. Here is a link so you can see what you think Heather: http://bugguide.net/node/view/8056
My best guess: male White-faced Meadowhawk (Sympetrum obtrusum). Anyone agree with my ID?
