Widow Skimmer Dragonfly

It is almost the end of July. At this time of the year, we usually have three or four dragonflies flying around in our backyard. They find themselves a nice narrow surface to rest on it. Usually they’ll sit on wilted grass, tomato cage frames, branches, small sticks, etc. Our pool seems to attract them as well. And sometimes, I see them diving right onto the water surface. This Widow Skimmer rests on a green onion, and keeps an eye out for those mockingbirds. Dragonflies are on the mockingbird’s menu. It’s the circle of life. But the very next day, I have another four dragonflies visiting my backyard. So it is all good.
