Well… I wrote a couple of weeks ago about how WordPress tells you what people are typing into search engines to find your site. “Dragonfly eggs” is a big one that sends people to me. Up until today, I only had one picture of dragonfly eggs. Today, I am happy to report, I have more.
If you were a female dragonfly, today was the perfect day for egg-laying: it was hot and sunny. I took the Program Assistants and counselors out to do a Dragonfly Survey after lunch, and they caught two dragonflies that were just pumping out the egges.
Later, we hiked over to a different pond where the Meadowhawks were flying. Click on this photo to see a larger view of these eggs… They were spilling out like overproduction on an assembly line in the factory!
(I’ll probably cross-post these photos on my Survey blog some time tomorrow.)
We’re not JUST dragonfly nerds! While we were out, we also saw a Goldfinch nest, and a Monarch Caterpillar.
