I'm pretty sure it's an autumn meadow hawk, female.

She's pretty and really shows off well against the white butterflies.  Nice shots.

Thanks.  That was her perch for quite a while.  Every once in a while, she would fly away but then come back to the same spot.

She likes your butterflies; you must have a large number of insects for a dragonfly's lunch in your wildflower patch.  Were you lucky enough to get a photo of her with prey in her mouth?
