There is a swarm of dragonflies (I would estimate 20 to 30) currently living in my garden. They are most probably there because of an abundance of food – they eat other smaller insect such as aphids and flies, so I ain’t complaining. Plus, they are pretty cool to watch darting about the place and seem to have taken a liking to a jasmine vine I have growing in my courtyard.
Has anyone experienced something similar? Is it a common occurrence?
Dragonfly fact – they belong to an ancient insect group called the Odonata, one of the first flying creatures on earth.
