This is the moment a young boy adorably mistakes a dragonfly for a ‘baby helicopter’. 

Student Shannon Vanover, 21, from West Virginia, was spending some quality time with her nephew outdoors when he made the interesting observation. 

She had been trying to record a funny TikTok of her relative playing around when they were interrupted by the dragonfly.

But the young boy had not seen the winged insect before, and looked terrified as it curiously flew around over him.

Demanding to know was the dragonfly was, he asked Shannon if she ‘had seen the baby helicopter’.

Shannon found his reaction hilarious and asked him to repeat what he said, when the dragonfly zooms back into shot and he says it ‘looked like a baby helicopter’.

The scared nephew keeps asking ‘what is that’ as the insect flies closer, but Shannon is left in a helpless fit of giggles by the boy’s suggestion it is a tiny flying machine.

Dragonflies do actually bear some similarities to helicopters in the way that they fly, according to scientists.

Slow-motion videos of the insects show that they angle their bodies upward, like a helicopter, when they fly backward and use their wings to pull back with the same amount of force they use to propel themselves forward.

Dragonflies can also fly upside down, turn 360 degrees almost on the spot, and fly at speeds of more than 55 kilometres per hour.
