Vitruvian Dragonfly

I was asked about the Vitruvian Dragonfly, so here's the post again:

We're all familiar with da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, which explores the proportions of the human figure.  Inspired by it, I decided to put together a version for dragonflies.  Here it is, the Vitruvian Dragonfly:

This uses the stick figure I sketched some time ago.  It's based on the Happy-face Darner, also known as the Paddle-tailed Darner, and is taken from a photo, ensuring that all the proportions are correct.
