The dragon flies have been very active this year. A few weeks ago, there
were ~8 zipping around the pond, "playing tag". :whistling:

There were still a few out today.

Please Note....I chose "Not for kids" as the setting in YouTube, but you can decide if
you want to share with your little ones, especially the final video. Smiling

BTW, I will upload at least one hour of a dragon fly coming & going on the lotus stem if anyone wants
to stream it on their tv just as a background. I captured the long video on our security camera. Can't get
quite as close & no sound as on my 35mm, but kind of cool, imho, and hope you'll agree. Smiling

Also, lotus are easier to grow than sunflowers, roses, cosmos, etc......"easy as pie" . Thumbs up
Bees & dragon flies love them, too, though for different reasons. Smiling

I noticed the dragonfly kept his front pair of legs tucked up behind his head. I wonder why.

You're right.....I'd never noticed that. It looks like he (?) has a small pair
next to his head.....probably for grasping prey.......or holding on. Whistling
