I seen something flying around that I thought was an insect, but it was huge. When I caught up with it I realized it was a dragonfly (unknown) flying with his butterfly dinner!
What? Dragonflies EAT butterflies!? Oh my life is changed now =( Lol
Great info! Thanks for sharing!
As for the butterfly, since there is only one row of orange dots on the underwing; my guess is a Pipevine Swallowtail; Battus philenor. Hard to know for sure.
The abdominal tip resembles a small pair of grappling hooks, thus the name. Another feature is the widely separated eyes, a feature shared the "Petaltail" dragonflies. Photo of the face: http://bugguide.net/node/view/56642
