Nature Friday - A Dragonfly Swarm

On Sunday, the Man took us out to play and called Lady to come out. There were at least 50 dragonflies flying around our yard. There were even more on the road. The Lady and Man stood in awe and were late getting their dinner in the oven, but they didn't care it was just too cool!

Some research suggests this is a dragonfly feeding swarm.  The Man said this could be only like 16% of the dragonflies in our area. Apparently we like dragonflies because they eat the bite-y bugs.

How did we dogs feel about them? It took some time but Hailey really wanted to hunt them.

She really did, while Phod didn't really seem to notice . . . .

Guess I will just watch them

Not sure what the big deal is! 

We hope you have enjoyed our dragonflies. Thanks to Rosy and the Boyz for hosting Nature Friday!


  1. we hunt them too! but so much dragonflies... wow!!! the grampy of the mama said that are fairies... if he was right, then your place is a magic place where fairies and miracles happen ;O)

  2. Jake would have done what Hailey did, Big would totally ignore them... I have only once in my lifetime seen a swarm like this. at the park close to our house, only on one day, there was a swarm like this. we stood amazed

  3. We have never seen a dragonfly swarm before. How cool!

  5. Wow, so many dragonflies - that's amazing!
    Is there a pond or lake nearby?

  6. Flying, swarming bugs with Dragon in their name are what makes up my nightmares.

  7. We would have been like Lee and snapped at them. Never seen a swarm of dragonflies...we dogs have never even seen one dragonfly! Very interesting.

  8. That sure is a lot of dragon flies. We would be afraid they were going to attack us. You are very brave to go after them Hailey.

  9. Wow! That's amazing! We've been seeing dragon flies lately, but only one at a time.

  10. Coolest thing ever!!! We would have been trying to catch them!!

  11. The video is amazing - I've never seen anything like that! And any bug that eats a bug, is a friend of mine! .....most of the time! :-)

  12. Holy cow! That's really something. Never have seen that many dragonflies together. Very cool!
