I can see you.

Hi, I'm a dragonfly. I can see you. I can see you very clearly. My eyes have about 30,000 little lenses, so I can even see what is beside me. Can you do that – without turning your head? I don't think so.

Do you want to see me fly? Can you see that I have two pairs of wings? I can fly forward and backward.  I can change directions very quickly.

One thing I can't do very well is walk. I have six legs but they are only good for standing and holding on to plants.

I'm hungry. If you see a mosquito, let me know. I like to eat mosquitoes.
