If you need evidence
that miracles exist,
look to the dragonfly.

Though its wings
are certainly longer
than most insects’,
they’re still usually
shorter than your
pointer finger.
And yet the top speed
for a dragonfly
is 19 to 38 miles per hour,
depending on its size.


This dragonfly here
in our backyard
probably regularly exceeds
our neighborhood speed limit!
How can those paper thin wings
create so much energy and speed!?

Just another superstar
in the greatest show on earth,
now playing in your own backyard.
