When I was young I used to chase dragonflies. These fast flying insects are amazing to watch in the air but they are more captivating when they land to rest. When they stay still, you can appreciate their brilliant colors and their lovely transparent wings.
Dragonflies were so abundant when I was young. Dragonflies flying among the flowers and plants used to be a familiar sight but not anymore. Today it's a treat to see one flying in the garden. Some say pollution has caused the dragonfly population to dwindle. That's a sad thought. I hope these beautiful creatures will be resilient and be able to withstand the effects of modernization.
