Dragonfly city

They come every summer, these magnificent fliers, chomping up flies and mosquitoes as they pass through.

Yesterday hundreds were flying north along the edge of the Delaware Bay, the wings glinting in the late afternoon sun, moving like they had a train to catch in the upper bay.

I reported it to The Dragonfly Swarm Project, and here, mostly as a reminder to myself.

In two days of just sitting on the beach I’ve seen dolphins, pelicans, and dragonflies, and interacted with stinging nettles twice.
