    Hi Linda,

    Do they look like any of the ones in the Dragonflies gallery on my web site? Here's a link:

    My guess would be one of the Meadowhawk species. There are several of those and they are very similar in appearance, making them hard to tell apart. Sometimes I just have to call them a Meadowhawk species and leave it at that. (You'll see some of those on my web site.) Autumn Meadow hawk is easy, that's the only one that has yellow legs. White-faced Meadowhawk is also easy if you see it from the front and can see the white face.

    The gold ones are either females or juveniles, the males are usually red.

    I just love dragonflies too! I've had a lot of gold ones in my yard this summer. 2 inches long or so. Do you know those?
