effectivement belle éphémère, cupida est une des premières a apparaitre en rivière au printemps. Elle est suivie de près par nebulosa.

actually ephemeral beautiful, greedy is one of the first to appear in the river in the spring. It is followed closely by nebulosa.

You got it. The idea for the alien in the Sigourney Weaver movie, "Alien", came from the dragonfly larva. If you adjust for scale, Hollywood hasn't rivaled what actually exists.
