The other day I was down by the garden pond watching a beautiful large dragonfly that was flying too fast to capture on camera, so I turned my attention to photographing the water lilies. A few minutes later I heard a splash and was astounded to see that a newt had shot out of the water and captured the dragon fly that I had I had been admiring just a few moments before.
The scene was reminiscent of a wildlife program the one with the crocodiles and the wildebeest crossing a river.
Here are some pics I took of the empty body shells of dragonflys that have already hatched. Amazing that something so beautiful could come from something that looks prehistoric
And a lovely butterfly for those of you that may have been traumatized by the previous photo's
