I screamed when I first saw this dragonfly. I thought they usually like to hang around lakes and ponds and such, not on plants. It stayed in that same spot all day long.Thankfully, when I checked this morning, it was long gone.

I dropped this cracker and instead of just throwing it away, I tossed it outside for the squirrels to eat. I should have known better. The ants were all over that cracker before the squirrels even knew it was there.
When I was
a lot younger I would catch these bugs, cup them inside my hands, and peek at them as they lit up. Then I’d let them go and start all over again. Now? Let’s just say I’m not a kid anymore. lol
I hate these bugs. I’m actually scared of them, so I’m pretty surprised I was able to get this picture. Just looking at their red beady eyes gives me the heebie-jeebies. <shudder>
I’m not sure what they’re doing and I don’t think I really want to know.
