Eastern Pondhawk

On my dragonfly quest, I found this guy.  It seems I don't have to go far from home to find dragonflies.  He landed on the steps by my house.  He was a tough one to identify.  I got my ODNR dragonfly guide and searched and searched.  It wasn't until I read the various descriptions that I found a clue.  The Eastern Pondhawk is blue--but it hatches out green and changes to--starting on the abdomen (tail.)  That is what I have, here.  I searched on the internet and found pictures of them at this stage.  The next day, I saw a completely blue one out in the park, and this morning, I saw a completely green one on the outside wall of my house.  What confuses me is, why are they by my house?  There are no ponds, here.
