Blue Dasher Dragonfly

July is part of the peek season for pond dragonflies. So when I visited the bass Ponds on the third weekend in July there were a lot of dragonflies around for me to photograph. Since I had so many pics I have broken them down and given most types their own post with a pick up post for types that I only took one or two pics at the end.

This first type is the Blue Dasher

Is it true these guys eat tons of mosquitoes? In the BWCA we always used to think we were safer when the dragonflies appeared.

Thanks Birdlady.

Yes TB, dragons are our friends. Dragon larve eat mosquito larva and adult dragons eat adult mosquitoes. Its a win win for us.
