Tiny..ish Flying Violent Weapon

Be careful what you scrape off the Muskoka cottage wall this early summer.   The  small size ugly thing ..looks dead..but actually is the incubation home of an insane aggressive dragon fly as observed on my cottage walls.

In my picture..that Dragon Fly came out of that cocoon….it took a good 24 hours…The head comes out first and finally the wing tips..

Dragonflies are great hunters. In their larval stage – which can last up to five years! – they live in the water and eat anything that comes near them, including aquatic insects, tadpoles and small fish. As adults, they eat flies, mosquitoes, grasshoppers, butterflies, flying ants and even other dragonflies, which they catch while they’re in flight.   Read more at DRAGON FLY
