I watched this dragonfly feeding near a pond for several minutes. As with many things, the appearance of the dragonfly is deceiving. It looked so delicate and fragile, yet it is considered a predator and preys on small insects, particularly mosquitoes, flies and bees. In college I studied Shakespeare for a year. One of the recurring themes my professor drilled into us was "appearance and reality". Note to self... all things are not as they appear in nature or in life.
