Datura and Dragonfly Migration 10/15/14

“Clouds of insects danced and buzzed in the golden autumn light, and the air was full of the piping of the song-birds. Long, glinting dragonflies shot across the path, or hung tremulous with gauzy wings and gleaming bodies.”
~ Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

October 15, 2013 sigWednesday October 15, 2014 – Today it was very windy and I have a few photos of what I believe to be my last datura blossom of the season. The wind was blowing hard enough to make photos a challenge today.  I also saw a number of variegated meadowhawk dragonflies.  Four at one time where trying to perch on fennel and old iris stalks in the same spot. I believe that they might be migrating.  Also The Xerces Society is requesting help from citizens to find out about migrating dragonflies.  Today is the 15th day of the month long poetry challenge.
