Butterflies, Dragonflies and Other Flying Creatures

     The sky seems as if it is filled with winged wonders flittering about. Butterflies are everywhere during the daytime as are the dragonflies. The dragonflies have their work cut out for them thanks to a recent hatch of mosquitoes. The dragonflies will do their best to make a dent in the mosquito population as they swoop along the water’s surface to catch them.

     When the sun goes down the lightening bugs show up.  It’s so fun to watch for them and see them light up. It looks so magical and I feel lucky we live in a place with dark enough skies to spot them.

     One of these days I will take the time to learn about all of the different types of flying creatures in our neighborhood.  Until then I’ll just refer to them generically as butterflies and dragonflies.
