I’m reading some very ingesting things about dragonflies… they really are fascinating. They swarm around our neighborhood on summer nights feasting as they dart through the air. Curiosity struck me to learn a bit more about them and I’ll say, they’re very interesting.
-They have incredible hunting skills: they basically spot their pray from a distance and then intercept it mid air…
-They can see far better than any fly and in every direction…
-They can move each of their 4 wings independently …
.. and the list goes on…
This site is great! And has great videos
They swarm around our house in the summer evenings but really just fly around above us and leave us alone. Apparently some people experience them a bit more close up. This site includes many stories of them landing on and following people around… one person describes it as befriending the dragonfly; I call it dragonfly whispering:
It seems there is much more to the world of dragonflies then I could have imagined. I think I will further my research and wonder if I’ll ever run into a dragonfly whisperer. Are you one?
Perhaps the rebuilding of the body and spirit is the greatest service derivable from our forests, for what worth are material things if we lose the character and quality of people that are the soul of America.

Such a long day. Wish I was here to relax…

Good to know heading into camping season!
It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers,
but for powers equal to our tasks…” – Helen Keller
I’m so busy doing what I must do that I don’t have time for what I ought to do… and I never get a chance to do what I want to do!
Son, that’s universal. The way to keep that recipe from killing you is occasionally to do what you want to do anyhow.”

A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
