I was 12 feet away for the image and as you can see he's almost as big as Poof's
foot. The largest one I've ever seen, and just seconds post the image we both watched
him nail another dragon, one that prior to this one I would have thought of as large. It
is a Dragon eat Dragon world-

Wonderful shot. Proves dragonflies don't recognise danger signs or have a sense of smell :)

Dragonhunter--Hagenius brevistylus. Yep, they will eat anything they can catch, including other dragonflies.
