The dragonflies have very thin bodies and are sometimes called "needles". They have two pairs of very thin, see-through wings that stick straight out from their bodies atop one another.
The dragonflies have incomplete metamorphosis. The larvae live in water and live off of other larvae. The adults eat mosquitoes, gnats and other insects.
