Dragonfly - The 'Helicopter'


Taken from my backyard, when it sat for some time on this wooden stick . . . and i think this one is Crimson Marsh Glider (Trithemis aurora ).


The resemblance of dragonflies with helicopter is amazing. I read it from somewhere.
Perhaps, there would be some relation between the idea of helicopter and dragonfly. . .

A view from its bottom part . . .
