Flight Behavior

Minimum Height 10 m
Maximum Height 40 m
Behavior Description The majority of the dragonflies observed were flying directly over my residence, referred in previous information, with the exception of a single one that crash landed (I assume) and failed to take flight again before its swarm disappeared. there appeared to be nothing wrong with is visually, and its wings seemed completely intact, yet it seemed incapable of returning to air, only able to hover a couple of meters, similar to the way a hen glides.
