Dragonfly (Aqua)

SB2485003: Swim, Hover, Fly (Aqua)
Seeds: Soybean, Amaranthus, Purslane

On an evolutionary scale, we are babies compared to dragonflies. Some of the first insects with wings to evolve, they date back 175 million years, compared to our 20 million! They spend most of their life in & around water, swimming as nymphs.

Dragonflies then undergo incomplete metamorphosis to crawl out of the water and form wings! Their flight is magical; moving straight up or down, hovering with precision, even mating mid-air!

They are also our allies. Through their lives, they feed on what humans consider a pest—the mosquito. But their population is declining rapidly from habitat loss—a direct result of human activities.

This band, undergoing its own metamorphosis, moves from cotton threads to loofah sponge wings, urging us to form kinship with the nymph-turned-dragons.
