Take a look around

This was one of those moments where I was looking one place only to find this beautiful dragon fly zipping around somewhere else. Honestly I love looking around for the little ones when I’m out and about.

The only problem is usually I don’t get them in focus. This one I think I did a pretty good job. That said, I’ll just keep on trying.

Multi-generational migrations

So when I think of multi-generational migrations, I think of the incredible Monarch butterfly. Tonight’s article however, tells the story¬† of another one, that of the common green darner dragonfly.

Tonight’s article is entitled “It takes this dragonfly 3 generations to complete it’s annual 1,000 mile migration” by Jaymi Heimbuch over at the Mother News Network.

Dragonfly travels

I’ve always been amazed at how far Monarch Butterflies migrate but, now I’m just as impressed with how far the Pantala dragonfly travels. According to the article entitled “Tiny dragonfly species crushes long-distance migration record by riding high-altitude winds” by Michael Graham Richard¬† Over at the Mother Nature Network, it seems they travel over 4,4oo miles. Again, all I can say is wow!
