Hello everyone and welcome back to Darting Dragonflies! I wish I knew the names of more of these fascinating insects, but unfortunately it’s hard to find a book that covers dragonflies in this area. It’s harder than finding a mushroom book. Oh well, for now we can enjoy some pics of these acrobatic flyers anyway. Hopefully by next week I can put names to the dragonflies in the pics. Maybe. I will try anyway.
So, here we go with today’s look at dragonflies…
Dragonflies are amazing insects that can fly forward, backward, straight up or down, hover and even fly upside down. Depending on the species they can fly up to 30 mph (50kph).
There are 5,000 species of dragonflies around the world. We have 130 here in Ontario. I will share more facts about these amazing creatures in the next post which will be one week from today. A lot of people don’t like dragonflies, due to the fact they can be a bit scary looking. But really, they are quite beautiful and very beneficial. I hope you are enjoying this new little series. I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
