Mosquito Hawk

Did you ever wonder how such a dainty insect got its name? 
Don’t be lured by the dragonfly’s dazzling colors and fairylike wings. 

Truly, the dragonfly was named for its mighty mandible. 
The dragonfly is a predatory insect,
known to many as the mosquito hawk.   

So the next time a dragonfly blithely lands on your toe, 
remember that this pretty little insect is searching for supper.
