059/365 Northern Wheatear Oenanthe oenanthe

Heres yesterdays image. 
Image 059 is a migrant Northern Wheatear with a rather large dragonfly! I found it like this so dont know whether the dragonfly was dead already or whether the Wheatear caught it.  With a few head flicks the dragonfly broke up easily allowing the wheatear to continue its journey north on a very full stomach.

Northern Wheatear, Oenanthe oenanthe, Red Sea, Egypt, April, 2009.
