Caught sight of this wonderful predator…a four-spotted skimmer…balanced on an
iris stalk over the fish pond. Every few seconds it would take off and fly in a circle
over the water, return to its flower stalk to munch on its captured lunch.
I could see him working his mandibles, then watched it wipe its face
but I never caught a glimpse of his victim.
