Something Unusual

Dragonfly closeup 2
One time my dad took us to the Japan Expo at the L.A. Convention Center. While walking into the exhibit hall, we see an 赤とんぼ (dragonfly) flying around. It started flying toward the wall and instead of landing on the ledge, it flew straight into the wall at full speed. And died. It fell onto the ledge, and we waited for a minute for it to get up, but it didn't. I've never seen a bug willfully commit suicide like that. Strange.
