Caption: Dragonflies, 17th century artwork. Dragonflies are predatory winged insects that feed on small insects in and around wetlands areas. The adult form, seen here, develops from an aquatic larval stage. This is a woodcut from a book by the English naturalist and physician Thomas Muffet (1553-1604). The book was titled Insectorum sive minimorum animalium theatrum (Theatre of Insects), and was published in London in 1634.
