Southeastern Spinyleg - Dromogomphus armatus

Southeastern Spinyleg - Dromogomphus armatus
Beech Island, Aiken County, South Carolina, USA
June 28, 2009
ID based on this image and comments , the images here, and the info and images at OdonataCentral.
It was very logy when I found it on the ground in a flower bed. I placed it on the plant to facilitate photographing it. Considering its preferred habitat, I'm not sure why it was in my backyard as the nearest pond/stream is about 4mi. away.
The thumbnail shown in this comment was taken in an area about 6-7mi. from my location (as the crow flies).
