The last of the dragonflys are almost gone. Just a few stragglers remain a sign that there won't be many more warm days to come for a while. The dragonflys usually start appearing late in July and stay through the month of August. Every evening they show up in swarms numbering in the hundreds. It's quite an impressive site - like have a legion of small helicopters hovering over our backyard. Our dog, Imazadi, is usually so overwhelmed that she retreats into her dog house until they leave for the night.
