Today was another fantastic bug hunting day. A damselfly caught a huge butterfly or moth and let me watch the feast. It was huge and I am not sure how it managed to fit into the damselfly. Though it I shot many images of this, I still wanted something different. I continued my hunt and came across what I thought was a tiny flying ant sitting on a leaf. Flying ants are called swarmers and they only appear when an ant colony is mature. Swarmers are sexually mature ants that venture out to attempt to start a new ant colony. Very few make it, most become prey.
Then after I posted this blog and posted the image to flickr, I decided to flip through some more bug pictures. Turns out this is a black scavenger fly and can usually be found near manure. Fortunately I didn't step in any.
