What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

dining damselfly
In the second photo a damselfly dines on a lygus bug while a tiny scuttle fly (at the left) competes for the meal. By the way, I took these photos with the 6x lens of a linen tester mounted in front of a camera not designed for close-up photography.

Hi Ronald,
Your Damselfly foodchain image is great. Sorry we cannot identify the species (possibly a Violet Dancer, Argia vivida). We have real problems identifying dragonflies and damselflies. Perhaps someone will write in and identify it.

Good morning,
The shape of the black marking and overall looj makes it a species of the Enallagma (Bluets)genus.
