A while back, I wrote a post on ballet moves of Trumpeter Swans, comparing them to those of human ballet artists. A similar comparison popped into my head yesterday when I was photographing dragonflies. So many of their perching postures resemble gymnastic/yoga moves.
Of course it is far easier for dragonflies to hold such a pose with their light-weight exoskeletons and small body masses than it is for a 100-150 lb human. Still, have you ever seen a dragonfly do this?
