  11. I can never, ever get a dragonfly to sit still long enough for me to get a picture of it! How do you do it??? I wonder if the one doing the eating is a female, and her victim her mate...a la spiders? Interesting...

  15. Yep - dog eat dog, bird eat bird, and dragonfly has a damselfly meal. They are omnivores...
    Life's tough if you're a critter! :)

  24. I could be wrong here, but don't female dragonflies slay the male after he mates with her and perhaps eats him too. I know some women like that. Okay, not really, I just thought it was a funny thing to say. Great shots.
