Hi Jan
The closest i can ID your Dragonfly is that it is a Tigertail (Ictinogomphus ferox).
For positive ID one needs to see the veins patten and even count certain cells as they vary in each specie

thanks for all the interesting photos you have been publishing Great!
MY get up and go has just got up and gone
Be Positive and Keep Smiling
