The dragon fly
The dragon fly  
Hi do you have any idea what type of dragonfly this is??

Answer
 Hi Ron
I spent many hours in Graduate school studying Odonata and the only to determine the species of dragonflies is by studying the wing vein patterns. All I can say about this is that the dark patches in the wings occur in a group of dragonflies called the Gomphids
