Do you know.. these dragon flies are termed the fastest flying insects....They feeds on mosquitos, insects, bees etc.Have u ever got a bite from a dragonfly..hmm it is sooo good..try to taste it at the very next chance...

It is said that dragon flies are distinguished from damsel flies by observing their wings position while on rest.You know these insects are in the larvae stage for most part of their life under the water.They can be as larvae upto 5 years under water..And this flying stage as a dragon fly will last only for a few months and they dies off..
