I spotted this tiny Halloween Pennant Dragonfly while walking one of the service roads at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
I believe this is a male because of the red on the edge of its amber wings. Here is a photo of what I think is a female Halloween Pennant: Dragonfly Perched On Stem
Note: I posted this to Facebook and was advised that this is a Halloween Pennant.
