Predator and Prey by roamingtigress Predator and Prey by roamingtigress
By far one of the most amazing photographs I've taken while on vacation on Sullivan's Island, SC. This dragonfly has chosen a Gulf Fritillary for its meal. Edited a bit to fix up contrast and strengthen colour.

The fact that he/she is using the stickiness of the mud to its advantage is really awesome! But if it's wings got stuck then he's in trouble!

Yep! I thought they were stuck too but as soon as I snapped the picture it took off with the butterfly in its jaws!

Doesn't look like he should be too happy about it, considering he's also got his wings stuck in the mud... eep! This really is an amazing photo though! Did he live to fly away after that, or did he stay stuck? o_o
