Facts: Dragonflies come in a variety of colors. Many of them have patterns on the wings. Dragonflies hold their wings flat when at rest. The green darner is a representative of the dragonfly group. Darners are large high flying dragonflies which can be difficult to collect. They are occasionally a problem around bee hives when they prey on bees.
