cut a piece of steel wire and add a pine needle to imitate the butt
build up a body with some random dubbing
now cut a strip of latex and use the back and forth segment method
continue building up the segments til satisfaction
now colour the body to the right imitation
take the pin/hook and build up the shape of a dragon fly head.
add legs, im using brass wire and build up the legs
now attach the body to the pin/hook and then build up a torax with some random dubbing
cover the torax with latex then add the wings, colour it some more
use the latex strip left over to build up upper torax, then whip finish, colour it some more and add varnish if you want.
congratulations you just made a realistic dragonfly
