Last summer I posted HERE about dragonflies, singing their prasies, not merely for the beauty, but their function. They eat mosquitos, and anyone who knows me also knows that I hold no love at all for mosquitos.
Yes, I know, I know, we are told to love our enemies, but please.
This year, dragonflies have prospered and multiplied and fill the skies around us, like helicopters buzzing here, there, then hovering for a moment before flitting away again. I am constantly reminded of Radar from M.A.S.H., hearing choppers before anyone else and crying out the warning "Incoming!!"
