A Green Heron spotted in the central wetland area at Huntley Meadows Park. This individual is eating a male Common Whitetail dragonfly. The backstory: Two male Common Whitetail dragonflies were flying in circles around the Green Heron's head: one dragonfly flew too close to the bird; game over, dragonfly! The Common Whitetail that survived is shown in the foreground of Photo 2; a male Eastern Amberwing dragonfly is shown in the foreground of Photo 1.
