So everyone is aware:
These two creatures are not the same. I don’t care if the “scientist” character confuses them.
Even if the dragonfly is the same size as the seagull, hopefully you can tell that the two are not the same shape. Therefore a line should never been uttered that looks anything like:
At first he thought it was a seagull, but on closer inspection realised it was a dragonfly.
While there were other things I didn’t like, this bothers me more than it should.
Someone with two bio degrees but who could have still been able to tell you a dragonfly doesn’t look like a seagull in 1st grade.
