I never would have captured this had I not heard an odd "vvvvttt.... vvvvvttt....vvvvvvvtttt" noise coming from my lawn. I walked outside to see what was going on, and saw it: a yellowjacket had captured a dragonfly and there was a fight to the death underway that the dragonfly was about to lose. I weighed whether or not it was worth the time to set up my "good" camera, or just go with the macro capabilities on my Pentax. I decided on the latter, and snagged a few quick shots.
