A Postcard with Dragonfly

I received a postcard from a friend a few days ago. I am attracted to this postcard because it shows a dragonfly in a smaller picture of the postcard. I try my best to identify the dragonfly species in the postcard, and my verdict on the ID is Brachythemis contaminata.

Brachythemis contaminata is a common pond species. It has orange colour body and its wings partly tinted with orange colour. It can be found from Perlis down to Johor in Peninsular Malaysia.
