One sunny afternoon we noticed these little (less than an inch in length) Bluet Damselflies hovering and sometimes landing on the tiny flowers of a goldenrod plant. After taking a closer look and a few photos we discover why. They were hunting even smaller flies that were pollinating the flowers. The hunting forays appeared to be quite successful as they nabbed numerous meals on this one little stem.
Little hunters with a big appetite.

amazing photos, loved the little hunters- reshared
These guys are tough to photograph since they rarely sit still. Great catch!
Hi Kit, photographing them was fun and no too frustrating them that day as they had found a good feeding spot and remained in the area and sometimes still.
I so love damselflies! 💕
They are amazing little creations aren’t they.
Wow, good eye, Mike. Love the details in the header photo.
HI Eliza, they were having quite the feast on the goldenrod and probably keeping it pest free. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
