Predators - coming soon to a backyard farm near you!

Flame Skimmer Dragonlfy (Libellula saturata)

My cousin Kelly swears this guy was posing for me. According to my go-to-field-guide, A Field Guide to the Plants and Animals of the Middle Rio Grande Bosque, the  males sometimes stray far from water to prey on small flying insects (like the the white flies on my farm!).
