Saving Dragons…

After showing dragonflies as my Wordless Wednesday entry yesterday, I felt so sad this morning as I saw a dragonfly lying on top of the pool water. I watched as its body just swirled around with the movement of the pump….it didn’t move at all.

I went and grabbed the pole with the skimmer net on it and swooped up the poor little waterlogged dragonfly.  I tapped it loose on the grass,  and you cannot imagine my surprise when it began to flap its wings rapidly!

Once again, I caught it up in the net and moved it over to the tall grass that isn’t mowed…

You can see the water drops on the lacy little wings in these photos.  Hopefully, our little dragonfly will be okay!
