These dragons of the air are swift predators that gorge themselves on flying pests like mosquitoes,flies and moths, Dragon flies are flying acrobats-- They can hover ,doge,dive,even fly sideways and backwards at 35 miles per hour! As they fly,dragonflies form a basket with their spike covered legs to scoop up the prey in midair. Dragonflies have huge appetites and can eat 300 mosquitoes in a day,giving them the nickname "mosquito Hawk"Contra Costa Water Department
