Maybe :-)
This looks like it could be a specimen of Neoharmonia venusta with a deviation from the "usual" color pattern....Aside, you take magnificent images! Went over to your Flickr page and was "wowed." Keep up the great work.

 
Thank you very much for the c
Thank you very much for the compliment :) . I looked over your flickr page as well. You have some fantastic shots of dragonflies and damselflies. Have any helpful hints for photographing dragonflies? They don't like to stay still when I'm close to them lol. There were several varieties that I was trying to photograph last Sunday but they wouldn't land for more than a second at a time.
