Common Hawker Dragonfly

The dragonfly is a fierce insect predator that hunts other flying insects. Did you know that dragonflies are the only insect that has the ability to beat it's two pairs of wings at different times. So when one pair of wings are up, the other will be down. This enables it to make very quick changes in direction when flying.
