Delicate Predator

Additional details: For all its delicate and jewel like demeanor, the Dragonfly is perhaps the most successful predator on Earth. Their rate of success in capturing prey is reputed to be 95%. They've been around since before the dinosaurs and are the most adept flyers. They can hover, fly sideways, backwards and upside down. They possess the largest and keenest eyes in the insect world with nearly 360 degree vision. All attributes that spell doom to anything they want to eat.
