While I was taking the pics I did not even know that the dragonfly was feeding.
I watched it flying around and was just hoping that it would land, since I have not had the opportunity to photo this type in the past.
It did land and I began to shoot. I moved around a bit to change angles but it did not seem to pay much attention to me.
When I put the pictures on the PC and began working on them I discovered that the reason the dragon had landed was because it had caught some prey. Here are some close ups.In the end the dragon discards the beetles elytron, the hard forwing of some insects that protects the hindwings, which are typically used for flight.
