Ants attack dragonfly, video


In this 16 June 2015 video, wood ants attack a four-spotted chaser dragonfly which had just metamorphosed from the larval stage.

Warden Erik Bloeming of the Bargerveen nature reserve in Drenthe province in the Netherlands made this video. See also here.

    • Indeed, it was just at a stage when it was about to fly for the first time.

      On the other hand, the warden who made the video says that during its larval phase, the dragonfly itself had eaten many small water animals.
