There is something lovely and delicate, yet so primitive about dragonflies.  Oh to see one of their Permian ancestors, the meganeura, with their 2-foot wingspans. Today’s dragonflies happily dine on mosquitoes.  Considering their non-vegetarian leanings, perhaps it’s best the meganeura are admired from a safe distance in time.
