Dragonflies are small, rare critters that can be found near large bodies of water which have sufficient amounts of cattails on the surface of the water during the day when it is not raining and there is low wind speed. When approached, they will fly a short distance up and away from the player. They can be caught with any Bug Net and carried in the inventory. Dragonflies also serve as bait, with a Bait Power of 20%. They can be used to craft Dragonfly Jars.
Unlike many critters, dragonflies are capable of spawning on screen. Dragonflies spawn in air within a small radius of cattails. If looking to farm dragonflies, it is advised to make space for more cattails to grow, since the critter appears to spawn directly from the cattail itself rather than by normal mob spawning. If there is air space underneath a submerged cattail, it is possible for the dragonfly to spawn in said air space. The type of dragonfly spawned is determined by the type of cattail. Oasis cattails spawn the Black, Orange and Yellow variants, whereas Forest cattails spawn the Blue, Green and Red variants.
