Dusky Mauve Dragonfly
I may be the softest and gentlest dragonfly in the swarm, but I’m also the prettiest, in my own humble opinion. You’ll find me hovering at times, soaking in the splendour of nature, but when I am ready to zip along, I can reach the supersonic speed of 48 km! I am an aeronautic acrobat, and can zoom forwards and backwards, pilots try to mimic me, but I’m never duplicated. I bring the party with me so take me home today for a buzzing good time!Find Food

Dragonfly air-robics was born of necessity. You see, couple decades ago or more now, a pair of dragonfly sisters welcomed a dozen young dragonflies each. It was quite the sight. That many children leads to a need, a need to keep them organized and occupied, as every over-worked and sleepless mama knows.
Thus, dragonfly air-robics were created. The babies would cannonball to the end of the swampy marsh, attempting mid-air cartwheels and half-tucks, before arriving at the glowing stalks of cattails, and head back for home, their glistening wings beating as quickly as they could manage, all while performing daring acts of air-robics, such as the double-double 180 super-spin while pirouetting through a crocodiles open smile.
Winners got extra attention from mom, and the moms got extra sleep, as days full of air-robics made for exhausted dragonflies!
Now, we aren’t saying feats of daring-do while mid-air are for everyone. We’ve lost more than a few who can’t tell their left from their right, their up from their down, nor even if that’s a cattail blowing in the breeze ahead, or a cat’s tail beckoning them in for a close up with sharp teeth and claws. Yikes!
No, and it must be said, some dragonflies are nervous-nellies who never get off that lily-pad, near-sighted nuts who somersault right into flying fishes maw, and ..ahem.. inelegant slowpokes who simply show up for the snacks.
Still, there’s room for everyone at the dragonfly air-robics. Just keep to your lane, and stay clear of our frenzied friends tumbling and turning, swooping and rolling at breakneck speed towards first place, and you’ll be good to go.
