One day last year I was lucky enough to see a swarm of dragonflies chasing each other around in the late afternoon.  They were large dragonflies.  It was quite a sight.  I could walk right into the center of the swarm, and the dragonflies would rush all around me, oblivious to my presence.  It was truly magical! 

Today, I saw more dragonflies chasing each other around the yard.  I ran inside and grabbed the camera.  It was quite a chore trying to snap a picture of a moving dragonfly - but I did get a few.  I will keep on the lookout to see if they will swarm again!

We've been having swarms of dragonflies here too! I love seeing them!

According to,

"In Sweden, folklore suggests that we dragonflies come around to check for bad souls - to weigh souls to be more ‘accurate’ and elsewhere, believed to sneak up to children who tell lies and also adults who curse and scold, to stitch up their eyes, mouth, and ears respectively."

Silly, huh?? ;) Have a great weekend Dad!
