Down the canal I found this common male Red Darter dragonfly - which seemed to have 2 hunting points too which it continually returned to. The first was on a blade of grass looking toward the water, the other on a leaf overlooking the grass verge. It did have a third spot - my hand, onto which it happily clambered for a minute or two while I got some shots. You can see the wing positions change in each one on my hand, as he took off and landed again a few seconds later, so the wings therefore were in different positions.
