I had plenty of both Eastern Pondhawk Females and Males around here this past summer. I was lucky enough to get several close-up photos of a few different ones.
The last two images I uploaded to this page show a male and a female both with a catch. I didn't notice at the time I took the photo, but looking at it now, the catch the female has sure looks like it could be another dragonfly. I'm not sure if they actually prey on other species or not, but the photo may be evidence?
