The photograph hardly does it justice,

6/20/08 – The photograph hardly does it justice, but the first summer swarm of dragonflies has arrived en masse. The shot below, taken above the outfitter, shows just a small part of the multitude of these predatory insects that can be seen buzzing around the woods and lakes here. Dragonflies signify another step in the progress of the seasons here in the Boundary Waters, and a valuable ally in our resistance against the invasion of pesky critters like mosquitoes and black flies. – Lee
Those little black specks in the sky? Dragonflies, looking for a bite to eat.
