We have a large koi pondWe have a large koi pond which attracts three or four different kinds of dragonflies. Each year we have a pair the jumbo bright orange ones; they are first to appear in early summer and last to go at summer's end. I often wondered if they are the off-spring of the previous year's pair and where did they lay their eggs. Was it around the edge of our pond somewhere? They are delightful to watch and very meditative for us humans to observe. I would love to have seen one with a two foot wingspan.
