Dragonfly. This insect begins its life as an egg laid underwater. It hatches into a nymph, spending two or more years at this stage. Finally, when the insect is full-grown, it climbs out of the water, sheds its skin and emerges as an adult. The aquatic lifecycle of dragonflies explains why they are almost always seen near the lakes, ponds and streams that are the habitat for their young.
