DESCRIPTION Unusual red coloured wings in this delicate dragonfly. Here are some facts about these gorgeous insects
- There are over 6,000 species worldwide.
- There are 320 species known from Australia and about 100 of these occur around Sydney.
- The larvae are aquatic or semi-aquatic and are known as mud-eyes.
- Both adults and larvae are predatory.
- Adults are often found close to water, where they hunt flying insects.
- Adults' legs point forward, forming a basket to capture prey in mid-flight.
- Dragonflies are generally more powerful fliers than damselflies and most dragonflies have large eyes that almost meet at the top of their head.
- Damselflies often rest with their wings folded along their backs. Dragonflies usually rest with their wings held straight out from their body.
