Great images! How can you ID female or male in Dragonflies? Any easy method?

Sadly no not a pet, Dragonflies are seldom visitors to my porch light, and this one stayed just long enough for the photo-shoot. It probably got run off by the lizards that guard that area

There are usually significant size and color differences between male and female dragonflies which makes figuring which sex you have a little easier.

I highly recommend which is a very handy site for identifying all manner of insects and arthropods for most of North America. You can post a photo to bug guide and the community will help identify it.
