Photo and caption by Joyce Le Mesurier

The dragonfly is an important symbol at the Gardens by the Bay which has 2 lakes, one of which is named the Dragonfly Lake. The dragonfly here looms large over the Supertrees which are made of reinforced concrete and are made to replicate mature trees. They are embedded with photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy and are covered with more than 200 species of bromeliads, orchids and tropical flowering climbers.

Location: Dragonfly Lake, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore
