Dragonflies

by Adonella Marena Documentary Italia 2008 19'

Fondly remembered as being called "dining needles"  or "darning needles", dragonflies dart into and out of sight or hover gracefully over water surfaces. But the millenary existence of the 87 Italian species, of the 4000 known, is threatened by land reclaim projects, pesticides, pollution, and intensive water use which are upsetting the delicate ecosystems they inhabit. Through original images, Adonella Marena depicts the life, habits, and oddities of this curious, fascinating insect, an example of nature's extraordinary biodiversity. <%YOUTUBE=qrBm4waE-T4%>
