Eats, flies and sleeps

by Darren

This is a male azure damselfly, just sitting on a piece of grass waiting for some prey to come along.  Often mistaken for dragonflies the damselfly is smaller and a weaker flier than their cousin the dragonfly.

He’ll stay here until he sees a small flying insect passing by – then he’ll fly rapidly to catch and eat it.  Then he’ll return to his piece of grass and bide his time until another tasty morsel passes by.

Not a bad life, eh?
