These gorgeous dragonflies (or maybe they’re not dragonflies?) and others buzzed around the pond yesterday afternoon, eating black flies and mosquitoes. I’m very fond of dragonflies and appreciate them flying inches from my head to catch the biting bugs while I work in the garden.
I don’t know the identification of any of these dragonflies and will appreciate any help you can give me. Do you know their names? My email address is here, or you may leave a comment below. I’ll repost this when I have the names.
