Eastern Amberwing (Perithemis tenera)
Eastern amberwings are small dragonflies that have a rich amber-orange color. Males have amber colored wings while females have clear wings with brown patches. These small odonates reside along ponds, lakes, marshes and streams. Often, you can see them flying low over the water surface or perching on aquatic plants. These tiny dragons can reach up to 1 inch in length.

this is really a nice picture a golden dragon fly with beautiful light and colour.
this dragonfly is NOT an Eastern Amberwing (Perithemis tenera). you are mistaken. this is a Skimmer (genus: Libellula).
it could be a female Needham's Skimmer (Libellula needhami) or a Golden-winged Skimmer (Libellula auripennis). both of them are found in your state.
but whichever it be, definitely not an Amberwing (genus: Perithemis).
anyway, thanks for the photograph. good POV.
I believe Ruby is right about the ID of this pretty little dragonfly. I think it is a female Golden-winged Skimmer. I checked my guide book and also some photos on the internet and found a shot that looks almost exactly like yours. Check out this site by pasting it directly into your browser.
You will have to scroll down a bit to see the Golden-winged image since it contains a few others as well.
PS. Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try a WS on your photo.
