Kites sometimes soar over cows to nab insects flushed by the grazing animals.
Once a kite spots prey, it swoops in swiftly to pluck it up with needle-sharp talons.
Each wing can move separately from the others, allowing a dragonfly to turn on a dime.
Huge eyes are covered with 30,000 “mini eyes” that help a dragonfly see in almost every direction.
The dragonfly’s amazing vision and flying skills are no match for the kite’s overpowering speed. The bird gobbles down the unlucky insect in midair then moves on to snatch its next in-flight snack.
