i love dragonflies, i am fascinated by their design.
this one sat for a long time and i was able to
really study it. they are so industrial looking, like
some sort of micro pilot inside a flying machine.
i noticed that the head seemed covered with a
kind of transparent helmet and the eyes moved back
and forth inside of it. This one was colored a gradient of metallic
greens and blues to silver. the wind was blowing at about 15mph
and i noticed that he seemed to be able to fold his wings
in at an angle close and down to his body,? like a
a brake, allowing the air to then flow past. He had a furry
body which tufted out from under his armor. legs had tiny
barbs which abled him to hang on i suppose.He looked
cartoon like, not real at all.
