Dragonfly eyes and flight

Dragonfly adults are predators and capture other insects, often in mid-air. They need large eyes for this task. They also have well-developed musculature to beat their wings at high rates of speed. The muscles are located in the thorax behind the head and the thorax is basically one giant muscle that powers flight.
