This post isn't completely wordless. We have a ton of dragonflies in our yard this Aug. Yesterday I was coming in from Shopping & this little guy was on our front tree. I was taking a few pics of him & he let me pat him & then landed on my hand. He was so cute. I never knew that dragonflies were friendly. When I was a kid I use to call them "sewing needles". I have no idea where I got that. I use to think that they were mean & would sew you.
