Vivid Dancer Dragonfly Eating A Spider

15 Apr 2015

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!
