I believe this is an immature Common Whitetail but the black on the wings is not quite right. ??

Cal,

That is most likely the Twelve-spotted Skimmer, Libellula pulchella, either a female or an immature male. Note that there are three spots per wing, for a total of twelve.

Very observant that you noticed that the wing spots weren't quote right!

Very beautiful picture, BTW. I think I am going to have to start trying my hand at dragonfly photography.
