Mystery insect (1 Viewer)

I was sent this photo among some dragonfly pics to identify but it isn't a dragonfly. I've no idea what sort of insect it is. Can anyone identify it please. The photo was taken recently in central Scotland.

Thanks Andy. Because it was with dragonfly pictures I assumed it was a large insect, but it may well have been tiny: The guy who took it may well have been showing off the macro capabilities of his camera.
