"The best enemies"

Category: Nature

 

Photo and caption by Cyril Verron

This photo is from a scene quite incredible that I saw a few days ago. A dragonfly (sympetrum) further weakened by the freshness of the morning came deliberatly hang this praying mantis which was laid on a flower stem broken that I was photographing. I shot some great macros this summer, but I must say that this was the most amazing that I saw, because we have here the eater and the eaten but in a configuration that isn't expected.

Location: Mach├ęzal, Loire, France
