Caption: Macrophotograph of the wing of a dragonfly, Agrion splendens, showing the network of longitudinal and transverse veins. Dragonfly wings illustrate a comprise between lightness and strength; the majority of veins are orientated longitudinally to the axis of the wing, providing maximum mechanical support. In addition to their structural role, the veins carry blood, air and nerves to the wing tissue.
