Dragonfiles and their toothpick cousins, damsel flies, arrive in July and provide a beautiful and lively addition to the pond community.
I don't know much about them, but they make great photographic subjects with their bright colors, big plastic eyes, and lace wings.
How do they do it?
Somehow this magic, hairy nexus of wing control lets them dart and hover with dazzling and
split-second precision that puts helicopters to shame – all with NO maintenance!
Damsel flies We called these "darning needles" when I was a kid in Michigan
