Hi Harris1737,

Nice detail shot of the head and thorax. Always useful for ID of dragonflies and damselflies. In fact sufficient in this case, but there are a lot of species and they can be tricky to ID. A full body shot showing the wing venation (where possible) and abdominal markings is always a worthwhile addition.
