Dragonfly chasing its shadow

There are always several shimmery dragonflies to keep me company on my walks around the track. It's almost like they greet me when I arrive on their side of the field.

As I stood in the stadium doing stretches after my workout, a dragonfly came flitting by, suddenly making eye contact with its shadow.

The dragonfly followed the shadow for a while, looked wary, then finally decided it wasn't a threat -- and it wasn't food -- and flew off.

Yes! Loving the dragonflies:) My son and I saw one transform this past July: http://organicsyes.wordpress.com/2009/08/15/transformation/

I believe they do communicate with us:)

I agree! I've become fascinated with them. They're so beautiful.
