Dragonfly wings

Dragonfly wings are like a work of art -- a very functional work of art. According to Smithsonian Magazine, dragonflies are able to "fly straight up and down, hover like a helicopter and even mate mid-air." I spotted this one flying from one perch to another at West Pines Soccer Park & Preserve.
