A damselfly -

rather than a dragonfly. They are usually smaller, and resit with the wings folded back along the body. Dragonflies tend to hold their wings at right angles to the body.
Good to see you're adding some identifications now, though!

Although annoyingly Dragonfly is the venacular equivalent to Odonata which includes Zygoptera (damselflies) and Anisoptera (dragonflies in the sense you are using it).

Someone (possibly Steve Brooks) has suggested Warriorflies as a name for Anisoptera to avoid the confusion.
