Dragon Butterfly

This iridescent blue creature looks like a dragonfly, and clearly is related, yet when it flies it flits it’s wings in semi-random wing beats much more like a butterfly than the hovering humm of a dragonfly. I wonder if it is a predator. I watched them for quite some time (the rest of my family gets on my case for stopping to look at things so much, so I try to hike ahead to give myself some stop and look time.) I didn’t see any predation, but from holding still so long I got to watch one of the common lizards that we have been seeing everywhere for a while. It had the remnants of an old skin sticking to its legs. No picture of that though.
