"Dragonfly Nymphs" Print

  • ON00154 MPH15.1.8
  • Item
  • 1996

Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "Dragonfly Nymphs," 1996. Includes the following caption: "The nymphal form of the dragonfly (as with most aquatic insects) is the stage of the life-cycle spent underwater. The nymph stage of the dragonfly can exceed four years, during which period this fierce predator forages on smaller nymphs and baitfish." The adult dragonfly has been the subject of studies by scientists for centuries in the quest to analyze its spectacular ability for aeronautics, which are presumably performed by co-ordinating the function of 4 separate "brains" for the dragonfly's wings."
