Common Whitetail female versus juvenile male

So I saw this dragonfly and thought it was a juvenile Common Whitetail but then noted that the wing spots were wrong.  Woo hoo! I thought.  A little research later, I learned this was a female Common Whitetail and down the field a little ways was a juvenile male to compare her to.
