Midland Clubtail

Earlier this season, I took this photo of a Midland Clubtail devouring a hapless butterfly. This species is a strong flier, able to chase down other flying invertebrates, including other dragonflies. They breed in fast-moving, clean streams in the northeastern United States, north and west to southeastern Canada and Manitoba. This individual hunted in the Carleton College Arboretum. See also my post of 16 June 2013.
