    I had to rescue it after I took the photos, as they are very good neihbors - they eat all the mosquitos and other nasty no-see-ums.

    But hats off to ya, Mr. Cape, nice catch!

    How big was the capensis? Considering the...err...power for the lack of better word that a dragonfly has it must have been really lucky/really strong to prop up the dragonfly like so.

    Nice pictures too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Capensis is about 3" tall - but it's really three or four plants.

    The DF got it's wings all stuck. It must have landed for a rest, then discovered it couldn't take back off.

    Looks more like a damselfly to me. Dragonflies rest with their wings horizontal. Damselflies hold their wings folded vertically.

    It's difficult to distinguish the difference from that picture though.

    Its a dragonfly. Notice how the eyes are positioned.

    The closest my dews(filiformis) have gotten to that wouild be when I discovered a cranefly buzzing with one leg stuck. Free VFT food!
