D is for Dragonfly
Press the play button below to listen to my report on Dragonflies.:
These beautiful acrobatic insects have four wings each up to 9cm long. Unlike other insects when they are resting, their wings stay out at the sides which is how you can spot them.
Despite their attractive looks they are ferocious predators and have a hinged jaw to catch their prey.
Wild Challenge! Why not go pond dipping with an adult and see what you can find?
