Fly Dragonfly

Dragonflies are one of my favorite insects. Along with spiders and bees and ichneumon wasps and a few others… Ooo.. I digress. It is hard having so many favorites. Fortunately we have so many dragonflies and many types. This is one of the smaller ones. They keep the pesky insect populations down and are so beautiful to watch as they dance through the air or skim the surface of the water. The blue here one had come into the kitchen and was sitting on a cocoa nut shell in the window over the sink. Fortunately I was able to carry it outside where it flew off into a crystal clear blue September sky.

    I’ve been absolutely charmed by our myriads of species of dragonflies and damselflies – and I haven’t really identified but a few of them.

    The most memorable moment was a couple of months ago when there were literally hundreds of one of the larger species in the evening dusk following each other in a very precise flight pattern through three or four open spaces, for several hours until dark. It was aweinspiring.
