This dragonfly was perched on tall reeds by the roadside.

Moved from Dragonflies.

What do you think of
Brachymesia gravida - Four-spotted Pennant, in the guide here

Seems plausible.
It certainly has four spots, along with the white stigmal spot on the forewings. The photo is a bit dark, but I can say for sure that the body was a slate-blue color.
