We see the dragons and the damsels, but seldom see their prey due to their usually tiny size (mosquitoes, gnats, etc.) Dragons mostly catch their prey in midair while damsels mainly wait for their prey to come to them while perched.

I thought this next shot was interesting because the damsel has a catch in its mouth! I did a super crop - which ain't no wallhanger :lol: - but does show some detail on the very tiny, unlucky catch.

I though this one was kinda interesting. When I saw these two damsels, I though they were starting to mate, so I quickly snapped a shot. I turned out that one is preying on the other, however:
