Damselflies

DSC_1555_4460 Whoa, Dude.  The sunset is awesome.

Damselflies are some of the “good guys”.  They munch on mosquitoes, flies, and other small insects.  Sometimes they might dine on a spider.  They hang around water and lay their eggs there.  I’m not sure where this guy is finding any water around my garden; but these strange looking creatures are welcome as long as they like.

I need some damselflies around this place. Way too many mosquitos...and the tree swallows can't keep up. Guess I need a water feature to attract them.
