Spreadwing? - Archilestes grandis - Female
Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, USA
August 1, 2015
Pretty large, about the same size in length as an immature common whitetail dragonfly that hung around the garden. He rested on the prairie blazing star for a while before leaving. We don't have a pond, but there are nearby creeks and pools.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks to be female,
Archilestes grandis
