A welcome visiter at my house

It had rained all night and was raining still when I went to leave the house for work a couple of days ago. As I struggled to get my dumb umbrella open, I realized I forgot my lunch inside. When I turned to go back into the house, I saw my visitor!! I told him he could stay as long as he liked and visit anytime! I should have known he was there as the mosquitoes were not!

He was huge! Sadly, he was gone when I got home - and the mosquitoes were back.
Look at those wings!


  1. He is beautiful. Do they feast on mosquitoes? I did not realize that.

  2. I didn't know they ate mosquitoes. We don't have many of them around here anyway.

  3. This is the first year I've seen dragonflies at my house. I've never seen them in Bakersfield before. We don't have mosquitoes! Thank goodness.

    That one is huge! And big and kind of ugly. Ours are tiny and green. Either way I don't want one to land on me! :-)
