Great photos you managed this early in the year. I will probably have to wait at least three weeks for that species to arrive here.

You are right about the species, and it's a female (seen by the tip of the abdomen), and a rather newly emerged one, judging by the shiny and delicate apperance of the wings.

I like your use of large aperture (f/5.6) because you manage to nail the focus just right.

Nicely lit. A reflector or fill-in flash from the camera position might have shown some more detail in the first two.
