Last time at Skokie Lagoons I watched 2 Green Darners flitting around in the bushes. They finally found each other and sailed off joined together to keep the species going. Adult dragonflies live only about a week - most of their lives are spent as nymphs crawling around in the mud under water. Wonder if they have any idea that procreation means death?
