This is a teneral male Seaside Dragonlet that I saw in Swan Quarter, North Carolina. Mature females are mainly orange with some black markings, while mature males are all dark blue. New adult (teneral) males like this one start out with thick orange stripes on their abdomens and gradually lose them. (I think it's the same for females, except that their thoracices are mostly orange.)
