Dragonfly ID - just for fun

For those of you who are interested in dragonflys; do you know what this is? I think if you know what you're looking for then it should be quite an easy one to get!

Correct! A nice male from yesterday. I've seen a few around that area in the last few months but hadn't seen one resting yet. This one had to take a 5 minute break out of the wind to warm up the flight muscles before he took of again.
