Male Western Pondhawk
The western pondhawk is a common dragonfly in the western states and provinces of North America. With its oversized jaws, it can overpower and devour most large flying insects such as butterflies, damselflies and even other dragonflies. It is most often seen perched on vegetation as it scans for a potential meal to fly by. This male was seen lying in wait along Soos Creek, in Kent, Washington.
