dragonfly horse fly beard

Video shows dragonfly eating horse fly off Canadian man's beard

That's a pretty fly moustache you've got there sir.

A Canadian man played host to a very unusual dinner party after a dragonfly and a horse fly landed on his beard. 

Shawn Ness-Wonson from Perth, Ontario took to Facebook to share footage of the hair raising incident. 

The clip shows a dragonfly feasting on an unassuming horse fly who clearly landed in the wrong place that day.  

"Dragon Fly 1 Horsefly 0," said Ness-Wonson, captioning the video. 

Fun fact: Dragonflies are voracious eaters who consume 10 to 15 per cent of their own weight per day on insects like black flies,  mosquitoes and midges.

According to Ness-Wonson, the video was taken in the James Bay Lowlands West of Attawapiskat, Ontario on Friday, July 10, 2020. 

He also captured a pretty cool photo of a mosquito biting a horse fly in the same region last year. 

Horse flies should really be more careful when there hanging out around there ....
