Dragonfly Days

Dragonflies change colors as they mature. Some start out brownish and turn green or blue. Some remain brown and some turn brown with old age.

It kind of makes definitive identification from photographs difficult when the specimen is brown. Looks like this one has a partially white face and some green on its eyes, along with that wonderful gold color on its abdomen segment that may help with identification.
