Ruby Meadowhawk

Description:

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to the names of insects. I have always just reffered to these and anything that looks like them, 'Dragonflies'. I know that they are Dragonflies, in general, but being that I can't keep myself from photographing them, I figured I should really learn their names and more about them. Any help wuld be appreciated.

Notes:

Seen close to a freshwater marsh.

I would absolutely LOVE to visit India!! But it's such a huge country, I could spend the rest of my life investigating it. You should come to California as well, we have a huge variety of ecosystems here.

After looking at pictures of each, I'd definitely say it's a Ruby Meadowhawk. Thanks masonstothart!
