Dragonflies come from the Odonata order of insects. They are normally found in wetlands, swamps, ponds and lakes.

However, the other night, this one flew straight into my living  room, probably attracted by the bright fluorescent light.

It fluttered and attached itself  to the wall. Dragonflies are aquatic nymphs that prey mosquitoes. Now that is good news to me because those pesky mosquitoes have been giving hell for long nights.
