Breeding pair
Here is a link to the male seen on Sept 8th in the same area:

I thought I saw another one when taking this females picture but failed to keep up with where it went while taking pictures of the female. Probably a breeding pair - there is a small spring-fed frog pond close by that doesn't have any fish in it.
