Cannibalism in Dragonflies

31 Oct 2019

Have never noticed cannibalism in dragonflies. But today I saw one. Then a search on Google confirmed it.

I was standing outside my home. The weird sound of two dragonflies flying around caught my attention. Initially I thought it was a mating dance. But then the duo sat on a banana leaf. I saw the eyes falling down. Wow! This is something different. I grabbed my phone and quickly returned. I got enough time to take three snaps. Then it flew to another plant, and then to another.

I had never observed or even had any idea that cannibalism exists in the world of dragonflies. Google search returned several links and YouTube videos that confirm this behavior of dragonflies.
