Damsel in Distress
These dragonflies by the name Southern Heliodor (Libellago indica) are mainly found around streams and waterbodies. A few males are territorial and do not tolerate another male intruding in it’s area. Resultantly the two males perform a mid-air combat and try to shoo away their opponent. When they are busy in guarding their territory, these Fishing spiders are ready in ambush to snap and capture a Damselfly unaware of it’s presence. Everyday I used to see at least 3-4 damsels being hunted by these spiders.
