It's a fly-eat-fly world. This photo of a Large Red Damselfly was sent in by Dan Edwards from Devon. Damselflies are carnivores, feeding on small flies, midges and mosquitoes. They're also competent fliers and are able to catch their food while flying. But sometimes they take the easier option of just landing on flies which are resting on leaves.

I love dragonflies, I once had one land on my hand that I put out for him and he stayed there for 5 minutes, it was wonderful. I was lucky in as much as i ddn;t get bitten, I believe they are quite capable of nipping LOL!!
