2006 Photograph, Black-Mantled Glider or Black Saddlebags Dragonfly (Tramea lacerta, Family Libellulidae), Occoquan Bay NWR, Woodbridge, Virginia, © 2019.
This photo shows a male dragonfly that is still maturing as indicated by the sheen on the perfect wings and the fact that mature adults are almost constantly on the wing, rarely perched like this.
