dragonfly eating a damselfly

Well, that’s what I think it is.  Click to biggify.


It was pretty cool to see the dragonfly go by and notice it seemed to be carrying something.  Luckily it landed nearby and I was able to study it briefly.

I was nervous about photographing it as it is on the windowsill of a bathroom at my university.  Not the sort of place I want someone looking out of and seeing a prof with a camera!

This time of year, I see many preying mantids.  They are easy to catch and seem to be at the end of their lives.  This dragonfly was still pretty spry, though.
