Interesting facts about Dragonflies: The oldest Dragonfly fossil is 320 million years old. Ancient Dragonflies were much bigger-a fossil from the Permian period had a wingspan of 29 inches, compared with abut 6 inches today. Dragonflies can fly 30-60 mph and can cover 85 miles in one day.
Today I saw the dragon-fly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
of his old husk from head to tail
Came out clean plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro' crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew
- Alfred Lord Tennyson
