Dragonflies to me means “Everything Happens for a Reason”. I truly believe they are signs of protection, faith, and luck. It means good things are to come. We have had great times and bad luck but I do have pictures to share and videos of millions that have swarmed us and our home.
Oh, how fun! I would love to see a swarm that big!
Media pa 19063. My front yard about 75 to 100. Steady rain this morning.
Birds swooping in after them. Dissapated around dusk.
Excellent! Thank you for letting me know!
Today was the annual dragonfly event at our house, approximately 500 – always around this time of year, from late afternoon until dusk. The kids stand in the middle, and they are swarmed around and landed upon. Usually happens once, last year it was 3 times. It seems magical. 78 degrees, partly cloudy.
Sorry- forgot to mention, I’m in mid-Maine. :)
What a treat to see this every year! I would love to have that opportunity. I’m also thrilled to hear that you let your kids stand out in the swarm. That’s such a great experience for them, and one I hope they’ll remember throughout their lives.
We’ve always wondered why they come and why only one or 2 days a year. :)
You’re probably seeing the tail end of the migration north or the start of the migration back south. If you’re anywhere near the coast this is even more likely!
We live approximately 1 hour from the east coast of Lake Michigan.
Hi! I reported a swarm in Florida and wanted to leave some more info. Here are the temps for Jax at the time of the swarm: http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/jacksonville-fl/32202/august-weather/347935
And here is the rainfall for the same: We had had 8-10 inches depending on who you ask. http://water.weather.gov/precip/
I hope this helps!!
Thank you so much for the additional information! I really appreciate your taking the time to send this in.
