Thanks Malcolm Wilton-Jones, you solve the "video prolem saving".

Yes ...logical, they suck their victims!!
I notice you are having trouble with your videos and if you go to "Support" bottom of the screen, they can help you with that problem... : )

Look at the 5th pic.. there is a suction tool like a mosquitos suction. Maybe sucking is the way they eating their prey.

I read something about their spiny legs to catch prey in flight, but when it comes to eating their prey.. I have no idea...?!
