Caption: Fried dragonflies and rice. View of de-winged dragonflies fried in coconut oil on a ball of rice. These edible insects belong to the suborder Anisoptera of the order Odonata. Dragonflies are predatory aquatic insects. The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes moths, grasshoppers and beetles. Insects, along with arachnids like spiders and scorpions, are good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Photographed in Bali, Indonesia.
