Dragonfly wings

Sis has noticed the dragonfly corpse near her office for the past 2 days and only mustered the courage to ask her colleague to help her cut the wings off the body. When I asked her if I can take a look at the body too when she reached home, she said her colleague accidentally cut off the head and threw away the body and head. I remember when we were young, mom taught us how to hold the dragonfly's wings gently to take a closer look before releasing it. Nowadays we seldom get to see the beautiful dragonflies flying around. If sis is successful, she may get a nice imprint of the wings on her silver jewelry.

Those are gorgeous.
I've never seen a dragonfly up close before, what's it like?
