Four Spotted Chaser

By phil_j  
Taken this afternoon whilst trying to get a shot of a sedge Warbler, so didnt have time to change to a macro lens. I think it has been identified correctly, but if anybody knows otherwise I would be grateful if they could post the correct ID. Would apprecite and welcome any comments or critiques on the shot.
Thanks for your time

Correct ID. Good lighting on the body and wings. They're so big you often don't need a macro lens to get a good photo.

A really good capture. I particularly like the play of light on the rh wings. The stalk passing right through the shot is unfortunate as it divides it visually. It might be worth trying out some cloning to stop it short of the top? Good work.
