The life span of a dragonfly is as varied as its colors. Some species live as adults for weeks and some species live for several months. Some overwinter in either the egg or nymphal stage; but in some of the larger species of dragonflies the nymphal stage can last more than 2 years. Most have a single generation a year and their life cycle consists of three stages: egg, nymph (also called naiad), and adult.
