The beautiful dragonfly - fastest insect in the world clocking in at flight speeds of 60 mph. The exact purpose of a dragonfly's iridescent coloring is not determined but may relate to attracting a mate as well as be the by-product of light scatter from the way their bodies are formed to be so aerodynamic.
Colorful dragonfly. God's vivid imagination is in everything!
This Dragonfly macro image is beautiful! My favorite insect!
