Death by Dragonfly

By peripeteia
As I Was standing around after a dive, I saw a real life dog fight, but here the enemy had no chance, A dare devil dragon fly flanked and cluthed a wandering butterfly from the rear, it was all over before it began really.... Once jetted down onto a stick, dare devil dragonfly just began to dig in, pinning the wings of the helpless butterfly against a steady stick, he savagley began the feast, ripping the head open with cracking precision. Half a minute passed by before i noticed that all was left of the ballerina butterfly was four yellow wings spiralling lifelessly towards a sandy bottom .
