Painted grasshawk dragonflies

Wandering through the bushland area behind the southern end of Kewarra Beach today I noticed some particularly colourful dragonflies, which turned out to be the male and female of the one species, the painted grasshawk (Neurothemis stigmatizans). They're common across the top end of Australia.
