Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Dragonflies interaction with other invertebrates

In this thread anyone is welcomed to post accounts or even videos of dragonfly interactions with other invertebrates (e.g. dragonflies hunting or becoming prey themselves).

It is rare to actually spot a dragonfly (golden ringed dragonfly in the videos) kill a hornet as the letter is a dangerous opponent capable of killing the former as below:

Robberflies are able to kill dragonflies twice their size. How do they capture a dragonfly faster than them? My 2 cents, probably when the dragonflies are warming up during early morning (thats how hornets prey on them) or when their wings are worn out due to fights with other dragonflies. This dragonfly is a common white tailed.
