    Sure am a fan… they are just the most beautiful little mesmerizing insects. Here a few little facts that I found very interesting…. Dragonfly nymphs (the first stage after hatching) live in the water for about a year.
    While they are underwater they eat mosquito nymphs, tiny fish, and pollywogs. Don’t ask me what a pollywog is though :-) When they have matured to airborne insects, they catch mosquitoes and gnats (again…. don’t ask me what a gnat is) in mid-air before devouring them.
    After leaving the water and becoming flying insects, they only live for about a month.
    I’ve never connected the dots before… I’ve always seen dragonflies near creeks and water sources but never out in the middle of nowhere. Now I know why:-) Not only are they beautiful to look at, they also eat those pesky mosquitoes.
    Oh yeah… they can also loop-the-loop, hover, and fly backwards.
    Thanks for the lovely pick Mary :-)

    Hi Bree–thanks for the fabulous info. It is sad though that they only live a month in that beautiful adult stage. I have seen them a lot away from water too but you are right about the water. Pollywogs—-ooooo I had fun with those as a child too. I think they are the same as a tadpole??? that are frogs in their infant type state. We had a big waterhole in our back yard and we could swim in it when the water level was right and that is where I remember a lot of the wonderful creatures that fascinated me.

    Ohh ok.. Pollywogs, what a fun name for a tadpoles.. i like it :-) They almost sound edible…(guess they are for dragonfly nymphs) think i’m just craving polywaffle chocolates and golliwog biscuits… lol. Really have to hit the hay now, night all, this time I’m really going to bed X O
