Fox Island Mosquito Eaters - GO GET 'EM!!

Pond Hawks typically perch horizontally on algae mats. 
 
 Dragonflies can eat their weight in mosquitos, in an hour, snatching the little blood suckers out of the air and littering the water with what's left.  On the other hand many will also eat their fellow dragonflies.
