Dragonfly: Black Darter

Black Darter

This one is a Black Darter, I think. Locally common and widespread. According to the Wikipedia, the female's abdomen is mainly yellow, becoming browner with age. It has small yellow patches at the wing bases. The male has a mainly black thorax and abdomen. The abdomen has small yellow marks on the side, that darken with age. The wings are clear.

So I'm sure this one is a she.
