What do dragonflies eat?

Dragonflies are major predators that eat mosquitoes, and other small insects like flies, bees, ants, wasps, and very rarely butterflies.

I'm not sure what this one caught but it was large, much larger than what you can see as it had been eating for a while before I could get a shot.
It's red and a dragonfly so by default I am calling  it a ruby meadowhawk,but I don't know dragonflies so I'm just guessing.
