I am a big fan of dragon flies. Did you know that dragon flies eat mosquitoes? I didn’t know that myself until recently. One of my neighbors told me that fact last summer. Ever since then whenever I see a swarm of dragon flies swooping up and down across the front lawn I am happy to see them. Up until then I really thought that they were just a nuisance. I wasn’t crazy about them, but at least they didn’t bite people! Once I learned that they eat mosquitoes I thought that maybe I’d do a little bit of research on the bugs. Beneficial bugs interest me; I’d rather see lady bugs and dragon flies in my yard than use a lot of pesticides!
I was quite surprised when I started researching the little guys at just how pretty and colorful some of them really are! The ones that I see the most around my yard are a bright blue color. When I was researching dragon flies, I found a website that sold some nice dragonfly themed gifts that were made in the USA. I thought that was great because I am trying to support businesses that sell made in the USA products. The product that I liked the most was a hoodie sweatshirt with a pretty design of cherry blossoms with dragonflies flitting around them.
