MY CAPTURE TAKEN THIS YEAR OF THIS DRAGONFLY CLOSE DETAIL
INFO FROM WIKIPEDIA
Tillyard claimed to have recorded the Southern Giant Darner flying at nearly 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in a rough field measurement.7 However, the greatest reliable flight speed records are for other types of insects.8 In general, large dragonflies like the hawkers have a maximum speed of 10–15 metres per second (22–34 mph) with average cruising speed of about 4.5 metres per second (10 mph).9
