My friend, Kathi likes to call me whenever she has a bug-related question. Last week, she had 2 for me, the first being an ID request for this thing!
Turns out, she had never before seen a dragonfly at rest, up close. Not even in pictures. So this was a spectacular find, right on her front porch.
She was even able to get it into a jar, to really get a close up look at it, and to save it to show to her little girl when she got home from school.
Her second bug-related question will be addressed in a later post.
