Lately,I’ve discovered leaves that was badly damaged, I was wondering who made these damages. Got 2 leaves to compare with. To my point of comparison,the first leaves was not fully damaged,it was cut off into an oval shaped and ring form.However, to my second discovery was more intense. How can you tolerate to see, it was all disrupted and destroyed.They totally ate all the leaves leaving only the veins and stems. I ‘ve photographed it for proof. Who’s to be blamed for these?

Dragonflies as the fastest flyer, excellent catcher and best aviator. They have a very good clear eyesight,they can even snap up their food as they are flying along.This is interesting as they can do two things at the same time; eating while flying. I took this snapshots this morning in our own garden backyard. I’m now focusing my interest to the bugs life. It’s fun to know more about our own insect neighbors; the ugly bugs, the beauty bugs and the beneficial ones. It’s a common insect that you can see in our own surroundings. The close-up images  will reveal the external features of a dragonfly. See how it looks!
