Dragonflies in My Garden

This year, I’ve seen dozens of dragonflies in my garden. The numbers have lessened since the heat wave hit, but I’m still seeing quite a few. Because they eat insects, I sure don’t mind them around – unlike when I was a kid and hated them. That might’ve had something to do with my father telling us that they were “sewing needles” and would sew our mouths shut if we talked around them. Thankfully, I’ve outgrown that trauma. Now, I’m actually paying attention to these interesting insects and noticing that they come in different, beautiful colors. Take a look!
