Dragonflies are one of the more exciting forms of insect life we see at the cottage. For one thing, they’re some of the fastest insects in the world. And perhaps even better is that they’re not great at walking (which might remove them from the class of ‘creepy-crawlies’ into a different, less scary, flight-based category). They’re graceful and beautiful. As another bonus, they eat mosquitoes. So what’s not to love?
