Hi Dawn

it looks like a female white tail.

here's a link to a photo of one.


The Nat'l Audubon Society field guide for North American Insects and Spiders describes the male's abdomen as gleaming white while the female's is narrow and brown with a row of yellow spots.

here's a link to good photos of dragonfly wing patterns:
