For some reason, we have had more dragonflies in our yard this summer than ever before! We haven’t seen any like this orange one Ann saw at Doodles and Jots, but our dragonflies do pose the way hers did! I love seeing them perched on my garden posts – keeping watch over my plants!I was pleased to capture some fun dragonfly photos with the kids.
Dragonflies are funny looking animals, in part because of their eyes – which can see up to 360 degrees! No sneaking up on a dragonfly! Here Emma is trying to imitate the dragonfly’s expression – I think she came about as close as is possible, as a human!
The kids really enjoy all the different dragonflies, and this one was tamer than the rest for some reason. Emma tried to feed him some grass, but he wasn’t interested.
I explained to her that that is okay, because dragonflies eat mosquitoes!
Do you have dragonflies in your yard this summer?
