Bon jour Willem,
Très très jolie photo qui permet de disposer de tous les détails.
En revanche, ce n'est pas l'Anax impérator, mais l'Orthétrum réticulé ♂ (Orthetrum cancellatum).
L'Anax impérator est beaucoup plus gros, l'abdomen bleu turquoise ouvert si mâle ou femelle, la couleur des yeux est différente également, les ptérostigmas sont beaucoup plus étandus chez l'Anax.
Bonne journée

Good day Willem,
I try a translation, but my English is not good.
Very very nice photo that allows to have all the details.
On the other hand, it is not the Anax impertor, but the Orthetrum reticulate ♂ (Orthetrum cancellatum).
The Anax Impertor is much larger, the turquoise blue abdomen open if male or female, the color of the eyes is different too, the pterostigmas are much more spread in the Anax.
Have a good day
