A snail on it's way to all u can eat buffet :P

Some facts on snails : snails tend to feed on a variety of items found in their natural habitat. What they will actually consume depends on where they live and the type of snail that they are. Some common items for their diet include plants, fruits, vegetables, and algae. Plants that are decaying are often a good meal for them. When they can’t find much else to consume they will eat the dirt. They are herbivores which means they won’t consume meat items. You will likely find snails around your garden as this offers them plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to eat. If you use herbicides or pesticides on them you may be causing the death of many of them without even realizing it. (quoted from this site : http://www.snail-world.com/What-do-Snails-Eat.html)

A helicopter grasshopper dragonfly having an early tour in the garden :)
C'mon dragonfly! Please eat all those insects that are having luxurious buffet in my edible garden...:P

Here's some facts on dragonfly : What do dragonflies eat? A dragonfly is an agile predator. Adult dragonflies and dragonfly nymphs (the stage of the dragonfly that lives in the water) are excellent hunters and mainly eat other insects. Have you ever heard of a dragonfly going on a diet? No? We haven’t either, because these little critters are carnivorous in their minds, bodies and soul. A fun fact here - A dragonfly can eat food equal to its own weight in about 30 minutes. Which roughly translates into a you trying to eat as much as 100 lb…let alone in half an hour.  We don’t eat that amount of food in a week! (all infos are quoted from http://www.dragonfly-site.com/what-do-dragonflies-eat.html)
