Circle of life

I noticed this the other day while relaxing at the Hamilton County Mosquito Preserve. One lives, one is someone's lunch.

I've had some problems posting pictures in the last few days. I dunno why?

I see it now. I was actually hoping it was an image I have seen many times (but it would be later in the season) where a dragon fly tears apart and consumes a deer fly.

Thanks Wldrns. I was conflicted when I saw the dock spider eating the dragonfly. I know that the appearance of dragonflies marks the beginning of the end of the black fly season. One less dragonfly extends the demise of the blackfly by a little longer, but hey, itsy bitsy spider gotta eat too!

Somewhere in my photo archives I have an image of a green dragon munching on a deer fly. I'll see if I can find it.

Here's a picture of a spider eating a stable fly just below the gunwale of my canoe on Stillwater Reservoir in 2017. No question whose side I was on in that situation.
