Bugs in Hawaii… A Purple Dragonfly?

My wife has quite an extensive collection of bugs, but I just saw this dragonfly that I’ve never seen before:

It looked even more purple in person then it does in these pictures.

The buggah was pretty brave because I got my camera right up to him/her before it flew off!
