Dragonflies and mayflies

Our pond area is full of dragon flies, mayflies and damsel flies. We have been watching how they fly and hover. They can fly up to 60 mph !

We then made our own out of pegs and tracing paper, carefully drawing in all the veins in the wings. Lastly we stuck on the huge eyes. Most of a dragonflies’s head is eye! They have amazing vision which makes them efficient hunters.
