Expert ID - Enallagma sulcatum (male)
I sent your images to Dennis Paulson (1) who identified them as Enallagma sulcatum.

 
Wow ...
many thanks. This is the first BG first for me, or am I missing something?

 
You're welcome.
Yes - it is a first for BugGuide.
Thank you very much also.

Perhaps ...

Vesper
Not Orange, the blue tip gives it away as a Vesper Bluet. Usually only seen flying at dawn and dusk. I find they love the lilypads or other floating veg.


 
Great!
Many thanks.
