Abstract

The aerodynamics of dragonflies, discussed by C. Somps and M. Luttges (14 June, p. 1326), present an intriguing problem. I share the author's conviction that an understanding of unsteady aerodynamics is essential for an understanding of insect flight. I also agree that dragonflies may use nonconventional mechanisms for producing lift.
