Odonata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (672 words)
Odonata is an order in the class Insecta, encompassing those insects commonly known as dragonflies (either when referring to the group as a whole, or for the species in the suborder Epiprocta in a general or the infraorder Anisoptera in a strict sense) and damselflies (for the species in the suborder Zygoptera).
Dragonflies are strong fliers with fairly robust bodies and at rest hold their wings either out to the side or out and downward (or even somewhat forward).
Dragonflies in particular are the raptors of the insect world and absolute masters of maneuverings in flight.
