Dragonfly

Anisoptera

Description:

Spotted this beautiful dragonfly in my mom's backyard garden in South Sacramento, CA.

Habitat:

Suburban garden.

Notes:

Dragonflies are valuable predators that eat mosquitoes, and other small insects like flies, bees, ants, and very rarely butterflies. They are usually found around lakes, ponds, streams and wetlands because their larvae, known as "nymphs", are aquatic.
