Hoi An Vietnam.
A quick snapshot with the LX7, the dragonfly wasn’t intended to be the focal point of the picture, but it does catch your eye.
Sunset by the river, Dragonflies abound.
Later I discovered that I had missed my left elbow with the insect replant, however the insects noticed and I didn’t for a few hours. In the half an hour by the river I was bitten 14 times on and around the elbow.
So be warned, when working by water in warm countries, you can find yourself on the menu.
Oh its not just warm countries I have been bitten north of the Arctic circle In Sweden in April. Take care.
Dragonflies are important predators that eat mosquitoes, and other small insects like flies, bees, ants, wasps, and very rarely butterflies. They are usually found around marshes, lakes, ponds, streams, and wetlands because their larvae, known as "nymphs", are aquatic.
Some 5680 different species of dragonflies are known in the world today.
Though dragonflies are predators, they themselves are subject to predation by birds, lizards, frogs, spiders, fish, water bugs, and even other large dragonflies.
