One just landed on my porch. I live in Citra, Fl
saw them for the 1st time at Ponte Vedra Beach FL last week &
took some great pics
glad to know the name - fitting
I saw one (4/15/15) for the first time in 27 years in our little acre preserve about 15 miles west of West Palm Beach, FL. I, too, had to look it up.
Saw one of these flying about my yard (just north of Gainesville FL) on May 13, 2015. Beautiful and unusual.
I went outside to my garden this morning, & looked up to realize I had at least eight-ten just flying around on top of me/my garden area..I had to look them up, it was pretty cool. They are very pretty & unique. East Orlando, FL. zone 9

Wasn't sure what exactly I saw yesterday until I found this picture here. Apr. 7, 2014 Middleburg, Fl.
Ocala Florida. First one I've seen. Snapped picture because I wasn't sure what it was.
Just saw a carolina saddlebag this morning in St Augustine! Very unique!
I am a Florida native and saw my first Carolina saddlebag dragonfly today. Was
excited to find your photo as it was difficult to describe accurately.
Love the website. Thanks.
I just came across the first one of this variety I have ever seen here in Okeechobee Florida at 12:45 am on 10/21/11
