Dragonflies are one of summer's most interesting insects.  I don't know much about them and I was surprised to see the number of different dragonfly species in Michigan.  I thought I'd do a quick internet ID on this one, but quickly got lost.  Even the beginner's guide to Dragonfly ID was intimidating.

I probably need to spend some more time reading about these airborne predators.  Mark Cassino's dragonfly photos and Mark O'Brien's blog on Michigan dragonflies and damselflies would be good places to start.
