They do lay their eggs in water. When I was little, I went to a summer camp. When I went on a creek-walk, I found a baby under water, and I didn't know what it was. Turns out it was a baby dragonfly!

Wow they lay their eggs in the water?

I don't know if that's right? ^^;

But I never seen a Dragonfly so close--I never really enjoyed their beauty until now :>
