|OK...this camping thing is NOT me.|
|Yippee...I can explore!|
|I know there is something in here for ME!|
|Dragonfly nymphs were everywhere!! |
Nymphs were crawling out of the lake and would find a spot.
They grass blades were thick with nymphs..even my camp chair
had one!! Sorry...didn't have my camera with me:<
|We happen to be in time for the migration of the dragonfly nymphs to emerge from the lake|
transforming before our eyes.
|Leaving the nymph skeleton behind|
|Pumping fluids into abdomen and wings preparing for flight|
|Storm brewing-of course this is when the fish start biting!!!|
