A dancer damselfly munches on a bug for lunch

Munchkin. I was attending a session on foraging for edible plants in the wild, at the Ralph Stover State Park in Pennsylvania, when I was distracted by this dancer damselfly which perched itself on the twig of a nearby bush. I was able to get really close to this damselfly and interestingly it was not bothered by the proximity of the iPhone with which I took this shot. It only flew off the twig once it had completely gobbled the bug.
