Skimmer dragonfly, Lesbos, Greece.

Can anyone ID this skimmer dragonfly from Lesbos. I think the first shot may be a male Epaulet skimmer Orthetrum chrysostigmata, which is recorded on the island, but they seem so variable in colour that I can't be sure. I photographed a much more certain female of this species in profile nearby (shot 2), with a clear white stripe on the thorax, but I'd appreciate confirmation/ a different idea on the first one, and correction if I'm wrong on the second!
