Default Yummy! A fat bug for lunch.

I saw a dragonfly having lunch on my lanai screen. Grabbed my E-3 which had the 12-60mm attached, and ran outside. I was able to get close for a few shots before he figured I was too close, and flew away to finish his lunch elsewhere.

Good series, Steve. As looked at these, I thought, "That would be an interesting abstract without the bugs."

Great shots and I love that color green. Dragons are a lot of fun to photograph.

Nice pictures you made from this insect.
We don't have this kind insects here so far I know.
What has this dragonfly for lunch?

Thanks Lordje. I'm not sure what he was eating, but I think it was the back half of some kind of cicada.

Nice. When I saw the title for the thread I thought we were going to see that Florida gastronomy is taking a horrible turn...
