Two late Greater Spreadwinged Damselflies, one munching on another insect


Greater Spreadwinged Damselfly (Archilestes grandis). After I found the Western Pygmy-Blue butterfly on November 21 I went looking near a pond on the Canon City Riverwalk for odonata and found two Greater Spreadwinged Damselflies (Archilestes grandis)-the one in the top two photos and a different damselfly at the bottom (see the difference in the ragged wings).

I didn't see until I cropped the top photo that this damselfly is munching on another winged insect!
This Greater Spreadwinged Damselfly has less damaged wings than the one in the top photos. SeEtta
