If you reprocess your dragonfly photo, using SHARPEN-ALL, you might be able to save the image.

Bill, great series and I happy to see that you are out and about with camera in hand. I enjoy seeing Jumpers and the image of one making a meal of the mantis is an outstanding capture of a moment in time.

You got the Harvestman well, I always seem to have trouble with them. The poor mantid got a bit of his own medicine but sad anyway.

👍 The shiny beetle is the dogbane beetle. I used to see hundreds of them as a kid back in Iowa but over here I don't think I have seen a single one. Strange.

They should be in your area. They are common over much of US.
I fed them to tarantulas, the bolus(food wad) left was very pretty.
Thanks all for comments.
