A new location for me and a new species too so far as I know. Site adjoins tidal river and creek system. It has the look of a Sympetrum sp. I thought. But can anyone help with this one? Thanks

Seaside?

 
Looks good and locale fits
Thanks John and Jane

With all the salt marshes around here I'm amazed I've never seen one before in my 10 years here! This is a 'new'/reclaimed tidal salt marsh habitat on the Elizabeth River so possibly it will be a good future site for this species.
