I was walking our cottage road and noticed the Dragonhunter land in a nearby shrub. I knew the prey was something I hadn't seen before so after grabbing a few pictures I relieved the Dragonhunter of its lunch. Since it was mortally wounded I didn't mind collecting the emerald which I deposited at the University of Manitoba Entomology collection.

Series and story greatly appreciated!
Nice documentation of this event. The images of the S. cingulata terminalia are particularly nice additions, as well. Wow!
