This afternoon I witnessed something so magical and beautiful that I still can’t believe it happened. No one was home, so just me and the dog watched the whole awesome show alone.
While putting the dog outside I looked up and saw what I thought were birds flying all over my back yard. When I focused my eyes, I realized they were too small to be birds…unless they were hummingbirds. We have spotted a few hummingbirds over the years near my trumpet vine covering our fence, but I couldn’t imagine that many Hummingbirds in one place. I plopped myself on the lawn chair and started watching very closely. After a few minutes I realized that it was a swarm of dragonflies that had descended on my yard. They were everywhere, I couldn’t believe they weren’t flying into each other. This lasted about fifteen minutes…it was amazing. Then the simply flew away. I don’t know what drew them to my yard. I don’t have fabulous flowers or fruit trees that I think would attract them.
I enjoyed the spectacular “Dragonfly Air Dance” while it lasted…it was awesome.
