Dancing With The Dragonflies

This past weekend, I discovered dozens upon dozens of dragonflies visiting my garden.  I haven’t seen so many dragonflies since I was a child (I won’t say how long ago that was…).   These are welcome visitors since I am hoping they will cut down on the mosquito population in my backyard.  These were quite young dragonflies so I am assuming they just emerged from the larval stage.  It looked a dragonfly festival in my backyard with the swirling and flying dragonflies in the air.  My camera was not able to capture motion photos but I did catch a few that weren’t too shy to pose for the camera.
