On hot days, dragonflies will “obelisk” to regulate the amount of sunlight that hits their bodies. Or maybe they do it to show off.
I was watching this male Slaty Skimmer for a while. It flew off a and came back with a snack.
If you can get past the freak-out factor, it is actually quite interesting how these dragons can chomp down a big bug without the use of their legs to manipulate it. They have all kinds of structures in their mouths that grasp the bug while the chew it up.
