Female Dragonflies Don’t Mess Around

According to a new study, in order to avoid unwanted male advances, female dragonflies will drop from the sky and play dead.  Researchers say they observed female dragonflies crash-dive to the ground while being pursued by an aggressive male.  The female would then lie motionless.  Once the male left, she would get up and fly away.  That’s brilliant!  Maybe try that at the bar some Friday night.
