Beautiful blue "Bluet" dragonfly

There is a diamond-in-the-rough wetlands,riparian area in eastern Fremont Co that is being turned into a environmental education area--but it's not open to the public yet. I will post more on it later, but first check out this very pretty blue dragonfly that I found there.

Sadly the blue isn't as vibrant on this internet site as in the photo, but it shows well. This is a type of dragonfly called a "Bluet". And I think it is called a "Familiar Bluet", though I am a novice at identifying the odonata family (dragonflies and damselflies). Please double-click on the photo for a great close-up view.
