A rather gruesome series of bees eating a live dragonfly... 



While out taking pictures I came across a dragonfly laying on the ground it was flapping it's wings and I saw a bee buzzing around it so I thought it would make for an interesting photo.  I am not sure if the bee stung the dragonfly and caused it to fall to the ground or if something else had happened to it. 


The struggle






another hungry bee...






dying pose  :'(


Last stand...


Kaput


Fine dining...


so dig in!  ;D

Nice series.

Quick FYI - those are wasps.  Bees only sting defensively and get only one shot.  Wasps - over and over... aggressively.

i like #4 the best.

Thanks for the clarification, I usually just refer to them as bees but I do know the difference.  And thanks for the comments.

I like the ones with the fishing fly next to them... great to see the resemblance to the real thing.

Good macros.

The orange/yellow dragonfly is pretty cool looking, I don't ever recall seeing one that colour before.
