Saddlebags in south Georgia - Tramea carolina

Saddlebags in south Georgia - Tramea carolina
Valdosta, Lowndes County, Georgia, USA
June 19, 2013
Clearly saddlebags, Genus Tramea, but I'm not sure of species (don't know the genus very well). I'm leaning towards Carolina saddlebags, T. carolina, but there are hints of markings on the abdomen, which I think is more Black saddlebag territory, right? Not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The dragonfly was skipping around quite a bit on our back patio, attracted to the light, I suppose. It eventually settled down and perched just below the light itself. Carolina? Two images will be uploaded for this organism. Your help is, as always, much appreciated!
