Dragon Flies to the Rescue!…
Summer residents Dave and Mara Cox clearly have excellent vision and a sharp eye for nature…
“Reprieved!
Mara spotted the Dragon Hunter Dragonflies all over our ferns along the lake.  This is the largest dragonfly in North America.  They just hatched and are drying off so tomorrow they will be sweeping and cleaning the air of mosquitoes, deerflies, and blackflies.
It takes four years for these huge dragonflies to hatch.  Mara keeps records of such things and the last time we had a hatch was exactly four years ago.  I can not believe how many there are.  Everywhere you see a fern they are hanging on each leaf.  I guess that is why you leave cover along the shoreline.
With all the rain we have had they are arriving just in time.
They are a sign of an unpolluted lake.  Lets keep it that way.”
Dave and Mara Cox…summer residents
