A dragonfly is any insect belonging to the order Odonata,the suborder Epiprocta or,in the strict sense,the infraorder Anisoptera. It is characterized by large multifaceted eyes,two pairs of strong transparent wings,and an elongated body.
Dragonflies typically eat mosquitoes,midges and other small insects like flies,bees,and butterflies.They are usually found around lakes,ponds,streams,and wetlands because their larvae,known as "nymphs",are aquatic.Dragonflies do not normally bite or sting humans(though they will bite in order to escape,for example,if grasped by the abdomen);in fact,they are valued as a predator that helps control the populations of harmful insects,such as mosquitoes.It is because of this that dragonflies are sometimes called "mosquito hawks" in North America.
