The ant works hard all summer long, while the dragonfly has fun. But then winter comes.

Inspired by Ivan Krylov’s Fable The Dragonfly & the Ant (1808), which is itself inspired by The Grasshopper and the Ant (1668-1694) by Jean de La Fontaine, which is itself inspired by a story in Aesop's Fables (620-564 BC).
