Donating to the museum[edit]

Like all fish and insects in Animal Crossing, the Common Dragonfly can be donated to the museum by talking to Blathers, the curator. He will tell the player some information about it when they donate it.

"<Player>, have you ever peered closely into a dragonfly's eyes? Blech! Ghastly, really. Hooo... But I digress..."
