Something to Brighten-up a Dismal Day

I have only seen the Red-eyed Damselfly at one location on the Isle of Wight to date.A while ago in the month of June I was fortunate enough to be invited to a collection of fishing lakes where this species could be found.
Sadly the day of the visit was overcast and damp.Nevertheless a wander around the lakes did produce several sightings of this damselfly.Generally views are restricted to individuals on lilypads out on the water.
However perhaps because of the dismal weather conditions I was very lucky to come across a male on foliage on the bank. A very handsome damselfly and always worth looking for.
