View of a brown and orange butterfly captured by a green and black dragonfly

Not the usual type of butterfly photo sent to the Gallery but a great example of how many butterflies and other insects end their lives.  Harold was very fortunate to witness this scene showing a Gatekeeper that had just been caught by a dragonfly and his quick response enabled him to capture the moment in this photo which was taken on Sandford Heath yesterday aftenoon, 28/07/2020.
