Male Pachydiplax longipennis being eaten by Opheodrys aestivus

Like a lot of these predation shots I heard the irregular beat of frantic, chafing wings before locating the scene.

I was taken aback when I first realized what was happening. That quickly wore off though and I was on the ground trying to get as close as possible without disrupting or having any meaningful influence on the situation.

Two great predators. In the end the dasher broke free and clumsily flew off (though he was lucky there were birds looking for an easy catch). I can't say for sure whether or not I played any part in the snake not succeeding in this struggle. If it were venomous I think (though I don't know if venomous snakes spend their venom on dragonflies or if they specialize in more protein-rich options) the dasher would've been done for.

But, the snake maneuvering his jaws to clamp down on the dragonfly gave some room for escape--especially since his jaws were over the thorax and wings, which were already beating trying to escape.

Thamnophis proximus predating Acris blanchardi

I saw these two while patrolling the pond from the inside, facing where the water level normally would be if the pond weren't mostly dried out.

I don't know if it was because of the pond's conditions or the time of day but we saw six snakes (one deceased). I usually find 0-1 Nerodia spp. on my walk around the pond.

Upon seeing this interaction I was shocked and called @elizrose and @joelle over. The snake soon bolted and we frantically reorganized ourselves trying to keep from losing him.

It was a extremely exciting encounter and though we went to this place in search of dragonflies, this was definitely the highlight.
