We found these wings at the base of a cattail plant, near Deer Track Pond in Kiera’s Forest:
It is still a mystery as to who ate the dragonfly. We heard a Great Crested Flycatcher calling “Weep!” as we made our way to the pond. Other possible predators include: other flycatchers, a kingbird, a swallow or possibly even a bat. Which predator “nips” the wings of a dragonfly before eating it? Please let me know if you have a possible solution to this tracking mystery.
After picking up one of the wings, I noticed a yellow-colour along the outer edge of the wing. My best guess is that this wing is from one of the Darner dragonflies, based on the large size of the wing and yellow edge.
