She Was Hungry!

A Damselfly--a female Fragile Forktail has captured some sort of a bee, which she devoured in a matter of minutes and then proceeded to catch another!

We welcome these tiny, size of a straight pin critters, as they eat volumes of bothersome insects!

Thank you to Jason and Gilly for recent User Awards, both highly appreciated!

Wasps can sometimes be beneficial, they help to keep pesky tomcats away!WinkGrinTongue
