first dragonfly has the look of an emerald but I can't place it...

that second, green, dragonfly appears to be an Eastern Pondhawk female (Erythemis simplicollis), beautiful beast aint it?

Thanks Erasmus! Not sure how I missed the Pondhawk, but yes, that's the female! I'll keep working on the other one as I'm sure it's in one of the reference manuals I have.

It's always fun to watch that species, even though it's rather common and widespread.  The females not only look but also behave quite differently.

I believe the first one is a Libellulid but I'm not sure which.  It's a slightly oblique angle but I think I can see the boot in the hindwing cells
