The entomologists here will know more about what it eats, but I believe dragonfly nymphs are carnivorous, and eat other water creatures. To see what it will turn into, use the Google search function at http://www.google.com and search dragonfly insect. I believe you will get pictures of the adult.

Thanks, David. I did the "clubtail" search and learned a bit more about these bugs.
