Large cattail marsh at Prentice Park on the city of Ashland's west end

Blue-eyed Darner (Rhionaeschna multicolor)
I was standing on the bridge at the park's west end and saw a small to medium-sized darner with blue eyes hovering over the water. It returned several times and I managed one decent flight shot. It soon disappeared and I did not see it again when I stopped briefly in late afternoon.
