Orange Dragonfly

An orange dragonfly perched on the leaf of a Mangosteen tree in my backyard, I doubt if it was a Rufous Marsh Glider (Rhodothemis rufa), not sure, because they are normally more reddish than this one.




If anyone can identify it correctly, please make your suggestion through the comments. I am interested to know, as  I am doing a small study on dragonflies and damselflies myself .

For this one, as you can see from the photo, abdomen, thorax and head are bright orange in color, eyes are brown - orange, wings are transparent and black, legs are brown - black. And it was a medium - sized one. 

Same dragonfly perched on a rope.
