Thanks Taka for your ID suggestion. I'm still not 100% sure, because most of the pictures on your linke show a dragonfly with a full red body... But your suggestions it's the closed I could find till now.

Please help. Do you think it could be a "Pantala flavescens, the Globe Skimmer or Wandering Glider" too. The habitat just does not fit.
