About the design:

The colors of this ‘dragonfly’ are actually based on a damselfly called the Ebony jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata). Damselflies are smaller, have more slender bodies, eyes that are farther apart, and wings that fold differently than true dragonflies.

Fern leaves start out as a structure called a ‘fiddle head’, which are in the center of this fern. Fiddle heads unfurl into the leaves as ferns grow.
