I think the species is rather the Anax ephippiger. Aeshna juncea has a different coloration.

Thanks, I think you're right. I thought there might be a diffence between male and female.

This was taken over a mountain lake at 2000 m. They were bigger than the ones down here.

The overall brown body with that blue at the beginning of the abdomen is a good feature of the species.
