Great Blue Skimmer

I was looking at pictures from earlier this summer, and came across a photo I had taken of a dragonfly in Kenney Park. I had not identified this species previously. Last night, I saw this picture again, and thought, could this be a great blue skimmer? I sent it off to Larry Rosche, and he said it looked good. If so, it would be quite a find for Franklin County. I checked the Ohio Odonata website, and I know the maps there are slightly out of date, but according to that sight, this species hasn't been recorded in Franklin County since before 1950.
