Description: This is one of the 71 species of dragonflies and damselflies tht have been spotte in sac County, Iowa. One website says that there are 500+ species in the world and about 400 species in the United States. They are beautiful, interesting and fun to photograph.
I believe this one is a Widow Skimmer. It is feeding on the stem left over from last year.
