Dragonfly ho!

The dragonflies are here!

I am amazed that I was able to get a picture of one, and disappointed that my little camera couldn't capture the dozens swooping over our yard. I've read that some dragonflies may migrate while others hatch in bunches- I don't know which group ours belong to, but they show up suddenly. One day nothing, the next a flitting swarm of prehistoric-looking dive bombers are hunting mosquitoes. The sun glints off the wings so the back yard almost sparkles.  

I heart dragonflies.

Hurray for Dragonflies! I hope they arrive here soon, we are swarming with mosquitos this year!
