I am not a bug person. I don't shoot them... I don't really even like them.
I had my camera outside to do something else and I saw this hanging there. Ten minutes later when it hadn't moved I thought oh dear and then.... it picked up and flew away. So it wasn't dead - and I have another picture with eyes so it wasn't decapitated either. Maybe it was sleepy, I don't know.

Is he dead? His head looks like it's falling off.
