Caption: Blue-green darner. Macrophotograph of the body markings of the blue-green darner or southern hawker dragonfly, Aeschna cyanea. These markings around the insect's forewings resemble a human face. Darners are amongst the largest and most colourful dragonflies. They are predatory creatures, feeding on other flying insects. Their two pairs of wings make them superb flyers. Darners acquired their name because it was once thought that they sewed childrens' mouths shut.
