Noted. Amazing photographs really. We usually get a large number of several species of dragonflies and sliders over the pond every summer. Love them because they keep the mosquito population down. I hope this winter hasn't caused them to disappear.

I am not sure which dragonflies we have here in AB, but they help to keep the mosquito population down, we always called them "helicopters"..
Thank you for sharing the pictures Cher.

Years ago, we had a cottage along the Allegheny River, north of Emlenton and Brady's Bend in Pennsylvania. This is the only area, in which I viewed tremendous amounts of dragonflys.
