So a very welcome addition to our yard, hopefully for a long time, was spotted this week. Not only quite lovely in color (a shade we had not encountered before), but fascinating to watch as it buzzes around, reminiscent of some sort of alien hovercraft.
A beautiful orange (huge) Dragonfly has graced us with it’s presence.
Reason I love them: They eat mosquitoes, bees, ants and wasps…Yay!
Things I did not know until writing this entry:
They are among the fastest flying insects in the world, can fly backwards and hover for up to a minute!
So welcome my friend and do plan to stay a long while.
