Last friday the Common Darter came visiting again and landed on my fathers jacket. I find these dragonflies very interesting, not only because of their nice look up close but also because of their acrobatics in the sky. True and natural helicopters, they soar the sky with amazing agility and precision. Last year i had the opportunity to study them and i noticed that they are skilled and ferocious predators. No insect is safe once they’re within reach.
Note to the smaller beings: So don’t be fooled by the smile, little insects, and respect the dragon(fly) 😉
