Description

The predator becomes Prey!!Golden-ringed Dragonfly (Cordulegaster boltonii) Preying on another dragon fly..
They are often seen flying leisurely over mountain streams or a river; they also occasionally show up at a pond. They are also typically seen flying over heath land. Their bright yellow and black stripes make them easy to identify, even from a fair distance away. They feed mainly on insects ranging from small prey such as midges to flies, butterflies and even bumblebees. This strikingly-colored insect is incredibly aerobatic and they sometimes fly very high up into the sky.
