BUG ID

Every year I overwinter a tropical lilly in my basement. I threw in a few water wisteria cuttings in there this year just for the heck of it.

Today I saw THIS! What do you think it is?

It looks to be a dragonfly nymph from the picture. It can be a predator of small fish but it also likes small aquatic organisms. The larger dragonfly darners (Aeshnidae) are the ones who can prey on small fish. They are considered to be a beneficial insect.
