red dragonflies

Asked July 10, 2015, 7:12 PM EDT

Yesterday afternoon we had a red dragon fly in our garden. We had never seen a dragon fly that color before. How common are they in this area? It was quite lovely to see and allowed us to get very close to observe it. We live in troutdale and back to a green space.

I don't recall the species name but I think they are fairly common. I remember seeing them on a trip to the central coast.
