Daredevil Dragonflies

Dragonflies are beautiful, fast, and very protective of their territory. They can hover by beating their wings slightly out of phase, or gain maximum liftoff by coordinating both sets of wings to beat at the same time. Using slow-motion technology, Sam and Si show you just how magnificent this small insect can be.
