Somatochlora? - Somatochlora tenebrosa - female

Somatochlora? - Somatochlora tenebrosa - Female
Sewanee, Franklin County, Tennessee, USA
August 28, 2012
I watched this female dragonfly feeding for over fifteen minutes this afternoon. At first I thought it was a Prince Baskettail, and then I realized the wings were clear. When I got home, I consulted a friend and several books. Now I think it might be an Emerald. Might this be a Clamp-tipped Emerald?
