Dragonflies (Odonata), or odonatoptères, are an order of insects with elongated body with two pairs of membranous wings generally transparent, and whose compounds and generally large eyes allow them to effectively hunt their prey. They are aquatic in the larval state and terrestrial as adults. They are predators that may be encountered occasionally in any type of environment, but are more common in the vicinity of stagnant freshwater brackish areas at low current, they need to reproduce. In French, the term dragonfly is generally used in a broad sense to refer to the Odonata, which include two sub-types: Damselflies (Zygoptera) and dragonflies strict sense (Anisoptera). (Wikipedia)
