Dragon Fly

Blue Bug

Blue Corporal, Libellula deplanata.


If we were discussing bugs back in the days, the prehistoric days that is, I admit we could hardly call this beautiful insect a bug - or a critter for that matter.

Meganeura--a prehistoric dragonfly

Back in the prehistoric (Carboniferous Era) days you could encounter dragonflies with two-foot wingspan!

So, as much as I hate to differ on this matter, I must however most respectfully reject the lessons provided by Xineann. In an astronomical perspective, todays dragonflies are simply small BUGS!
