Interesting

In legend, the dragonfly was a real dragon who offended the gods and was turned into an insect. Despite this apparent setback, the dragonfly transformed herself into a gorgeous and highly capable creature. She is the only flying insect that can hover and make rapid sharp angle turns. Thus, she has become a symbol of tenacity and beauty.

I really like the legend...

As part of my job I collect bugs that are in rivers and we see a lot of dragonfly larvae. I think it's neat that when they are larvae the are rather dragon-like in their looks... before they pupate and become adults...

Here are some pics
