First you live in a muddy old lake and swim around in the darkness.
Then one day you crawl up out of the shadows - leave your old body and fly off into the sky and sunlight. A dragonfly.

God created a wondrous place for us all.

Extraordinary picture, Clint. Like the leaves, I too am green - with envy.
I have read about the 3 stages of dragonfly - the egg, the nymph and the adult. "Once the nymph is fully grown, and the weather is right, it will complete the metamorphosis into a dragonfly by crawling out of the water up the stem of a plant. The nymph will shed its skin onto the stem of the plant and will then be a young dragonfly. The skin that the nymph left behind is called the exuvia and you can find the exuvia still stuck to the stem for a long time after the dragonfly has left it.".
If possible, please keep a watch on the exuvia. It may be an interesting subject too.

What is also amazing, and little sad, is that most of these insects spend a very long time in the larva and nymph phase (many years), then only live a short while (a few days to few months) once they transform into the form we are used to seeing. They only live long enough to mate, then the whole cycle starts all over again.
