A green dragonfly seemed fascinated by a scrap of paper on the deck:
A slightly more aerial view of him:
I was creeping closer and closer, when a cat decided she needed to see what was going on, and kind of ruined the moment.
I think this is a Clubtail dragonfly (Gomphidae), but there are several greenish ones that look almost exactly alike to me.
This one was easier:
Widow Skimmer (Libellula luctuosa). We see these all the time.
In looking up the dragonflies, I found a nice web site with lots of good nature pictures. The emphasis is on Georgia wildlife.
