Dragon flys and I have a love hate thing. I love that they eat mosquitoes but I hate how they attack me from time to time.
Laying eggsI have a bunch of turquoise dragon flies that hang out by my pond. I took a picture of one I saw today. It's in the middle of the picture. About a week ago two of them were hooked together... I guess probably mating and they tried to come in our back door. My wife was pretty surprised by the whole thing and didn't know what was making all the fluttering. Eventually I got them to leave.
I did see a really unusual dragonfly earlier in the day. It was a giant green one and it was using it's tail to scrape the top of a lily pad and then dip in the water. It was pretty weird. Unfortunately I didn't have anything to take a picture and it was gone by the time I got back with my camera.View attachment 114282
