Kennedy's Emerald? - Somatochlora kennedyi - Female
near Elma, Manitoba, Canada
June 3, 2013
The angles are tough I know (it perched way out of reach). Kennedy's is the only species that seems to fit. Opinions welcome.

Kennedy's sounds reasonable
Tenerals are tough, but kennedyi seems like a good fit.

Not a clutail
This isn't a clubtail. Note that the eyes are not separated as in a clubtail nor are they small. The thorax isn't marked as it would be in a clubtail and there are other differences. Browse through the pictures of emeralds and clubtails here on BG and you'll see what I mean.
