A Little Red-eyed Stunner.

A garden pond in the village of Shalfleet has a good number of Small Red-eyed Damselflies.As mentioned in an earlier post these delicate damsels have only colonized the UK in the past few years but now seem to be well established here.
The males spend most of their time sitting on a lily pad awaiting a female, and also having territorial disputes with other nearby males.
