A surprise on the lake

A surprise on the lake

We snuck away for a fishing outing in early June and happened to catch the dragonfly emergence. We thought we were seeing some sort of seeds stuck to the rushes, but on closer inspection we realized they were the shells of the larvae with dragonflies drying before their first flights.
Dragonflies are my heroes! When they are on patrol and scooping mosquitoes out of the air my heart sings.
