Dragon Flies Hang out In the Tall Grass

Back yard field trips can be a lot of fun  Here we are looking for different butterflies.  Trying to see how many come to Louisiana and determine what they eat or the favorite plants they love to dwell in.  We get a lot of skipper butterflies that love the tiny flowers that grow in the grass close to the ground.

Also the dragon flies hang out in the tall grass looking for mosquitos and it is amazing to see the large numbers they fly in and the different colors they come in.

This is a great way to learn how to do your own yard to be more insect friendly.
