Stuff I didn't know about the Odonata

This is a very good little video:

And some of the photography is really wonderful.

Superb video, thanks.

Direct flight muscles plus interception giving a near 100% predator success rate; as the video says, be grateful the 70cm ones are no longer around.

Thanks for a few minutes of pure pleasure
I watched this one afterwards The Insane Biology of: The Octopus - YouTube
Two of a whole raft of pleasures

What a delight, thank you! Last week I watched hawkers over a pond and wish I’d seen this first. I might have got some photos…
