I know it's not a butterfly or a bird but...

it seems to fit in this forum best.

I've seen a reeeeeeeeeally cool looking dragonfly. I call it a 'samurai' dragonfly. It appears to have rectangular-ish wings...with the ends extending down in a square. Almost like a biplane. I don't know if it's just the coloration of the wings that makes it look like that, or if there's some type of dragonfly that does have 'flaps' like that. Any ideas what it could have been that I saw? It was more than once, too...so that's why I'm leaning away from it being the wing pattern that threw me. Unless the same dragonfly came back to see me from last year - which I don't think is possible wink

I am no authority on dragon or damsel flies but I do think they all have round wings. It might be the type you saw.
