Thanks Taka. I think you are right. Now I have to find the rigth member of the family. Maybe there is a specialist outside at projectNOAH.

This not an Aeshna species, but a member of another family: Gomphidae (easy to see because they have their eyes separated). I do not know much about this dragonfly family, can not help you with further ID.
