Wow, I guess I have not seen those 2 feet dragon flies lately...

Carboniferous dragonflies had wingspans of two feet or more

As they are a little smaller today! –also catastrophic burial since there is no way one can form fossils without doing it quickly on such fragile things as dragonfly wings.
 Can any palaeontologist shed some light on this and give the actual rather than imagined situation?
