Who would have thought that a damsel-fly could eat another!
Is this common behaviour?

Hi CyberDoc,

It certainly is common behaviour. Generally the larger species prey on the smaller, but if they can catch it, they will eat it.

Thanks Paul.
I liked your Dragonflies of East Riding of Yorkshire website.

BTW Is there a internet database that would help me identify the odonata on my site:

Hi,

Thanks. For identification of your photos it may be worth looking through the gallery on the Aisa Dragonfly website.

I'd read about it, but I was still surprised seeing something similar this summer:
