#38,936.06480 Meadowhawk Dragonfly, Leucorrhinia species, Insect

Helicopters of the animal world. Aquatic nymphs, yet Terrestrial in the adult stage. Usually near water and aquatic-like, long slender bodies often seen hovering over a pond, lake or stream. They have two (2) pairs of flattened wings stretched out from their sides when at rest, and eyes covering 90% of their head: those are the key identifiers for dragonflies. They are similar to damselflies, but damselflies hold their wings over their body when at rest, and their eyes are much smaller. Portland, Oregon, USA, United States of America.
