That’s a female - see a male at, for instance, http://www.museum.state.il.us/ismde[…]x_junius.jpg

See both genders at, for instance, http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwil[…]e_jdavis.jpg

The female is the one with the tiny paycheck.

What a well taken lovely clear picture of what for me is a very rare sighting of any kind of Dragon Fly. They are a fascinating subject. This one has lovely colours.
