Artist's Description

A Four-spotted Skimmer (Libellula quadrimaculata) cocks its head to one side as it scans the surrounds for predators, food, or mates. Many different dragonflies flew in the vicinity—a veritable swarm of glittery-winged airborne critters, all interacting in a myriad ways. Dragons are very curious about each other, and they often compete over choice perches like the one this skimmer has found.

A very cool and wet spring, with temperatures sometimes at Jan/Feb levels in Jun, kept dragonfly populations fairly suppressed in the Lower Mainland of BC up until a recent heat-wave. With temperatures now in the mid-20s to low 30s ©, the dragons have taken to the air in force, a beautiful natural phenomenon to behold.
