Four independent structures
A Dragonfly’s wing
I spotted this Dragonfly the other day. She hovered all around my pool, before finally settling for a moment right at the edge, providing the perfect photo opportunity!
She is a drab grey colour, so boring compared to the bright blue or red ones I used to see as a kid.
However, she is still a magnificent piece of aeronautical engineering; designed by nature!
