There aren't all that many dragonflies in this country, so it should be easy to get close. Most have more or less transparent wings. Whereabouts are you in the country? Was the abdomen of the dragonfly long, straight, round and fairly narrow, or was it more flattened (pea-pod shaped) and wider nearer the wings and tapering towards the back end?
