Eastern Amberwing (male) - Perithemis tenera

I've had some photos of this ubiquitous species for a couple of weeks but nothing that I liked enough to post. Right now I'm finding a new species almost every time I go out. No, they aren't new to my life-list nor are they all that uncommon but the list is currently a bit lean so it's easy to find stuff that's not on there yet. I also have a couple of leads on where to find a couple new species for my life-list. This is the fun part of the season where it's easy to find new stuff. Here's the updated list:
