Default damselfly and antlion

My first foray outside with a Nikon D700 and some macro lenses. The damselfly, Calopteryx maculata, is munching a small fly.

Two firsts for me--I've never seen a Damselfly with a meal in its mouth, and I've never seen an antlion adult. We have the "larvae" in huge numbers, but the adults are either short-lived or very elusive.

Great shots, both... Robert
