See the closer view in the WS.

I had a very lucky encounter while this dragonfly had just captured a moth, Ematurga atomaria, and was intent on eating it, without worrying about my close presence. So I could walk step by step all the lunch.

Class: Insecta
Order: Odonata
Family: Gomphidae
Genus: Gomphus
Species:G. vulgatissimus

Gomphus vulgatissimus, the common clubtail, is a medium-sized (wingspan 6 -7 cm.) species of dragonfly in the family Gomphidae. It is found in most of Europe, and is present now in the south of France. Its natural habitats are clean, slow moving streaming rivers and creeks with sandy soil. It can be seen from mid-April in the south to August. Once they hatched out of water, they live shortly. As the common name suggests, this medium sized species has a distinctive club-shaped abdomen.The males are black with extensive yellow markings on the thorax and abdomen which turn green as the insect ages.The females are black with extensive yellow markings. In the British Isles the adult flight period extends from mid May to early July.

Ciao Luciano, giusta giusta per l'ora di pranzo, gran bella la famelica libellula e splendidi anche i dettagli della povera falenetta, magnifici colori e ottima nitidezza, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
A true killer this dragonfly.....Nature has it's way.....Nice image with good details and best focus.

Hello Luciano

Great shot of death and life action from the world of insects,
fine POV and DOF, excellent focus, sharpness, and details, TFS


Good capture of an episode from nature, Luciano.
The predator looks all too powerful while feeding on that poor Moth.
A very sharp and crisp image of the happening.

Bonjour Luciano,

L'insecte est bien placֳ© dans le cadrage. La prise de vue rapprochֳ©e permet de voir les dֳ©tails de la libellule. La bonne luminositֳ© fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journֳ©e.


Hello Luciano,
In BG that branch looks bit distracting to me, otherwise a pure natural habitat picture. Credit goes to you to maintain well focus on Dragonfly. Good details and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing,
