The past couple of days have brought rain and even some strong storms to the Bluff Country.
If you look closely at the upper left corner of this photo (click any image to bigify), you'll see something else that has completely taken over my place.
They may be difficult to see in these photos, but if you stepped out of my house you were likely to be bombarded by...
Great, big suckers!
They were hard to 'capture' with my camera because they move so quickly and blend in with grassy backgrounds but my entire yard was buzzing with them. When they'd bump into the metal siding on the barn, it sounded like someone was throwing ROCKS at it. I swear! These guys were the size of hummingbirds!
KAZILLIONS of them!!!
Apparently, dragonflies migrate. I had no idea. Although, I do know that this dragonfly 'seige' is a yearly occurance in the Bluff Country. There's lot's of information out there, if you're interested...
"There's a lot of information out there even if you're NOT INTERESTED! All I know is that those puppies were huge. And FAST!!!"
