Meet the Vivid Dancer Dragonfly! I captured this one eating what I think is a spider!?

Dragonflies are great helpers when it comes to controlling insects! I think I see wings there, so perhaps that is not a spider?

This happening was not captured here at the house, but in a area I like to go to here in our town! This area was near a water holding pond, there was plenty of activity going on! Of course you have to stop and look around to notice all the activity!

The Vivid Dancer Dragonfly is a common Dragonfly here. They are the smaller species of Dragonflies stalking and feeding on the smaller insects.

I get a kick out of the Dragonflies for the Dragonflies are our friends. Anything that helps control the insects is ok in my book!

I think that is a spider this Vivid Dancer Dragonfly is feeding on, however I thought I seen wings? Thought it looks like the cotton wood tree’s cotton is on the insect so?? We do have the cottonwood tree here and I can honestly say I do not care for that tree haha! I just think it is cool to see the Vivid Dancer Dragonfly helping out as it is doing!

Thank you for coming by and seeing my photographs of this happening!

    1. Thank you absolutelypositiveithink! Even though this series of shots were taken elsewhere, here at home we have many dragonflies. We noticed when we put in our small ponds the dragonflies came! Perhaps the ponds attracted food??

  1. Hi there again absolutelypositiveithink ,
    We do live in the high desert of Oregon (the high desert is found up in Washington state down into California), and we put the small ponds in ourselves. Every year we get more and more species of creatures showing up, either sticking around or stopping in for a rest before going on their way.
