January 13, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, my house

This is the back of the head of a dragonfly
He can rotate his head while he flys.
This makes it easier to keep his prey in sight,
Well, that, and his crazy huge eyes.

(Make sure you click to enlarge - I had no idea that dragonfly heads are mostly hollow until I took this picture.)
