Damselfly (Ischnura elegans) eating prey
   

Actual size 35mm, Cornwall UK

Canon300D with 100mm f2.8 macro lens. f/8, 1/160, ISO200 with fill in flash.

I was photographing a land bug when this damselfly landed in my field of view, killing and eating my previous subject. This shows the moment the damselfly pounced on it's prey.
