This Variable Darner flew at me while
I was working in the yard one recent afternoon.
I thought, "How cool is this? He's going to land on me!",
and I stood stock still.
However, it seems my face was his destination,
and I couldn't help but step back and dodge his final approach.
Nonplussed, he landed on a post directly behind me for a quick photo shoot,
before lifting off and trying to land on my face a second time. The funny thing (for me anyway) is that I've been tracking these darners all this late summer, hoping and waiting for one of them to land.
Not only are they busy, they are fast!
