Dragonfly Cannibalism

I’ve posted about this before, but I just felt like bringing it up again.

This happened a few years ago at my family’s cottage:

dragonfly cannibalism

The guy on the bottom is the living dragonfly.

watching and waiting

This unlucky specimen is the head of the guy on top, whose mouth continued to move the whole time. Yet another thing I had never known could happen (both the cannibalism and the disembodied head moving for an hour or two afterward), discovered up north.

Have you ever seen something like this?
