Excellent Jitti!
Only the boddy remains...
I never saw an odonata eating another.
Excellent on colours and POV!
Very good DOF and details!
Very good BG too!
5* and TFS!

Cannibal it is!!! Beautiful but cannibalistic. Very interesting moment you captured! Great shot Jitti! Thank you,

Hi Jitty, nice to meet you :)
What I find more fascinating of this predation scenes of damselflies, is the feline attitude.
They always go for the neck, as the felines do with their preys. I like very much to get them in this moment, which is not very easy, as they are alert so other insects dont come to steal the prey. Yo got a great series of this scene, all of the 3 shots you posted are very interesting and descriptive, I never saw canibalism here.
You can see the ones I posted HERE, HERE and HERE.
Best regards, Felipe.

Excellent series, Jitti. Good sharpness and DOF with only the tail going slightly outside the DOF range.
This series shows very well just HOW fast a damselfly will loose its colour once it's dead.

Great series Jitti, you did very well to capture the moment. TFS.

Once again, you show us a wonderful picture of damselflies ! I didn't know that they were eating other damselflies, in fact I don't know much about these wonderful animals but I really liked this series. Colors, details, composition, POV and timing wereperfect. Well done !

Hello Jitti,

Incredible shot of this damselfly eating another one (of the same species?). Very nice bg and dof. Excellent pov and composition. TFS,


Great image of this "Embrace of Death", JC!
Superb composition with the predator, the victim and the green twig on which the drama of existence is being enacted.
