Dragonfly Season


This weekend the dragonflies showed up in force! Little golden ones that folded their wings forward when they rested. No doubt they came to feast on our bumper crop of mosquitoes.   

A few weeks ago they were twice as big and dark brown but also had hairy legs.

This flashy cyclops was huge, the size of a hummingbird! I was worried that all the rain and cool temperatures might keep them away.  

I rescued this poor guy from a deep puddle in our driveway. He appeared to have put part of his compound eye out. Eventually he dried off and after a long nap, flew away. I hope.

Lets just hope they can avoid Mr. Toad.

Stripes, very slimming. Thankfully they just keep coming in all sizes and colors.
