Drama in the Dragonfly Pools

A clear sunny day so I visited the Burwash pools to try and find the Red-eyed Damselflies which is a new species at the pools for me. There were several males, one eating a Mayfly and also a coupled pair .
There were lots of pairs of Common Blue Damselflies but also a lot of extra males who kept trying to get in on the act. This female was being fought over by several males - eventually one got hold of her with his tail and dragged her to safety.
