At the wildlife pond, yesterday, there were so many dragonflies and damselflies - it was nearly impossible to count them, let alone identify which ones had been spotted.
They buzzed around so quickly, making it difficult to discover much about them without further research
Just take their wings, for example - the way they are designed is crucial to enabling them to effortlessly glide in the air, changing direction mid-flow. The wings are also key to spotting a mate or rival.
Survey like a scientist!

A way to finding out more about a species is to study it - in all aspects: sketching, detailed drawings and paintings, life-cycles and habitats.
