Odonata - Dragonflies and Damselflies

Only large Dragonflies can really stand a chance of catching a Butterfly. They are very quick and have powerful jaws, easily strong enough to catch a butterfly. Catching the occurrence on film is very tough though. Hence I've included a few pictures of adult Dragonflies and Damsel flies on their own.
