Red-veined darter (Sympetrum fonscolombii)

Not sure what exactly it is….. certainly a darter or Sympetum but there are many different red ones.darter1

Red-veined darter  (Sympetrum fonscolombii). This is the most likely candidate.

There are lots of dragonflies in the pine woods behind where we are staying, however the soil is sandy and I have not seen any signs of ponds or fresh water. So where do the larvae of the dragon flies grow up???
