A Marvel or Marvelous?


A male Red Veined Meadow-Hawk dragonfly perches on an old branch just above eye level. Perched facing right, he took a quick flight, then perched on the same branch facing left. He provided us a wonderful view of what has to be considered a marvel of engineering and biomechanical design from his amazing exoskeleton right down to the structure of his wings.

Truly a marvel as well as marvelous to observe. Beauty, form and function all wrapped up in one fine package.
