Love Those Dragonflies

Zipping about, the dragonflies are certainly active during the summer. One even landed on my arm while I was on the golf course. I would love to have taken its picture, but didn’t want to frighten it away while I rummaged in my pocket for my camera.

I stayed still and just observed it. Since it was so close, I could see that it had a small nymph or insect and was busily nibbling on it. They eat all sorts of insects from ants to mosquitoes. I guess their name is appropriate. They are the flying dragons of the insect world.

Here’s a photo that I took last summer of one.
