based on wikipea this appears to be Cherry-faced Meadowhawk (Sympetrum internum). I went back to my original photos and viewed them full sized.

I will try to catch one next year. the only place I have seen them here on Random island is that one river pool location. They do not appear in my area of Random Island

Thank you Frank, for the information. I will look it up. I have only seen this insect in this one location so far, so I have very little to go on.

Hi Tc.  The long slender body looks to be more Damsel fly than a Dragon. It may be an Eastern Red Damsel fly Amphiagrion saucium, there does not appear to be much about them.
