And this one is an Elegant Dropwing Dragonfly (Trithemis werneri) which is apparently quite rare and much sought after by Dragonfly aficionados. Thanks to the members of the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Southern Africa Facebook page fo identifying this and the SLate Sprite Damselfly above.

Excellent, BT - it's always exciting when you get a pic of something uncommon and sought after by those "in the know". :-0
