~Dragonflies~
(American 767)




Dragonflies are odonata
they have close large eyes
bigger than the damselflies

Have slender bodies two wings
Variety numerous
they eat other small insects

Attack small fish and tadpoles
eat mosquitos and midges
they live in diverse biotope

Some are found in ponds and swamps
Prefer to live in wetlands
Some live in lakes acidic bogs

Male grasps the head of female
Sperm transfer fertilizes eggs
Some female lays eggs alone

Eggs dropped in aquatic plants
or directly in water
Some larvas stage in ponds marshes

When ready to change into adult
They climb out of the water
Shed skin become dragonfly

Dragonflies are unique insects
Colorful beautiful
Adults can live up to two months
