The air was thick with dragonflies

DragonflyOne hot morning this week when I arrived at the barn the air was thick with dragonflies. They were swarming. Dipping and diving in a beautiful air ballet.

I love to see dragonflies — not just because of their grace — but because they eat mosquitoes. Lots of them. A single dragonfly can eat as many as 2500 mosquitoes every day! They are nature’s bug zappers.
