First one is a female (husband IDed) on top of the tree having lunch not flying away. I took a video but I decided not to post it ;-) I am really Thankful to my husband who is good at finding Dragonfly which perch on top of things.
Second one (male) was at the lake side clinging on the old branch. And has a broken wing. To make the place clearly I used a picture of wider view to make a collage. Too blurry to see where it was p-;)
