Mind blown! A lot like butterflies except dragonflies start out in the freaking water! I always knew they laid their eggs in the water but I didn't know how they got from there to being a dragonfly. Amazing!

Cool video! I have a whisky barrel size pot with a bell fountain and a couple of water lilies that they maintain for me every year by eating the mosquito larva. The first time I was fishing around in there and grabbed one of those critters, I jerked my hand out fast. Hilarious!

Great video!! Thought I'd share this- last year in AZ, I took this photo of a friendly dragonfly perched on a blue agave in our backyard. It would fly back and forth over the surface of the pool (sometimes just over my head!) and touch the water, then land on the agave again. It was very fun to watch!

I love them too, I will miss the ones around here when we move, in deep summer they follow me around on the mower. The bugs in the grass fly up and they scoop them up, lol
