Peculiarities – In Love with Bugs/Dragonflies, Hoverflies and Bumblebees


Dragonfly on Stick

I’ll admit I’ve always been in love with bugs. They are fascinating. Many of the ones I’ve included in this post are beneficial to have in your yard. Dragonflies, beyond their amazing beauty, are voracious mosquito-eaters. Hoverflies, besides sipping nectar from flowers, are a predator of aphids. Bumblebees, in their velvety jackets, are amazing pollinators.

    I have loved dragonflies since I was a very young child and always viewed them as mystical creatures. A number of years ago, I replaced the knobs of a storage cabinet with brass dragonfly pulls and still think it was the best money I have ever spent. It’s sad that I rarely see them flitting about in the same abundance as they did during my childhood.

      Hi Jane, I love dragonflies. Last year I was able to nudge one gently and hold it on my fingertip for a minute. I blogged about it, but I’m not sure what I wrote the post under since it’s been a year. Thanks for the comment. Kathy
