Green Eyed Bug

I don’t really like bugs. I was out shooting by a stream and heard this guy fly past my head. It sounded like a huge bee. It’s alot bigger than it looks here that’s for sure. Right after I shot a bunch of him sitting like this I watched him take off and tackle a moth mid air. He took the moth and it looked like he was shaking the life out of him. Then I got a bit too close and he flew to another bush while carrying the moth. Here is a shot of him holding the moth while hanging from a leaf with one leg. I thought about making this a seperate post but it’s kinda gross and I didn’t want to look at it for a whole day! I’m not sure what this thing is, it seemed like a cross between a dragon fly and a spider. I was surprised at how close I was able to get to him. For awhile he really seemed to be posing for me. :)
