Dragonflies & damselflies are beneficial to the garden. Their main food source is insects that can be damaging to plants and annoying to people, including mosquitoes and a variety of flies.

Blue Dragonfly  Today I saw the dragon-fly Come from the wells where he did lie He dried his wings: like gauze they grew; Thro' crofts and pastures wet with dew A living flash of light he flew. -- From The Dragon-fly by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

Dragonflies were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years ago. Modern dragonflies have wingspans of only two to five inches, but fossil dragonflies have been found with wingspans of up to two feet.
