I enjoy photographing dragonflies and damselflies; this year I got some pretty reasonable shots of common blue damselflies, white-faced meadowhawks, a twelve-spotted skimmer, and my favourite, ebony jewelwings. It can be hard to get these little guys in focus, but I am reasonably pleased with the results. (Click on the photos for larger versions.)
I only recently learned that ant lions are the larval stage of a damselfly-like insect. In fact all damselfly and dragonfly larva are aggressive predators (mostly aquatic).
How fascinating! I never knew that about antlions either. I had always supposed that antlions were the adult form. Thanks for commenting.
