|dragonfly feeding swarm|
Upon going outside to investigate further, I saw that they were very large, black dragonflies.They were moving quickly and darting all over the place.
It seemed as if there were hundreds in front of the house. The wing span was about 3-4 inches and the body at least that long. Then after everyone said that they had never been this close to a swarm of dragonflies, we moved into the back yard where there was another swarm of them. They stayed for about 30 minutes and then completely disappeared. It was an amazing sight. Nat kindly photographed them in the disappearing sunlight by lying in the grass and looking up at them. It was really a daunting thing to do with all of these fast moving insects.
Dragonflies signify light, transformation and illusion. You can think one thing is happening and it is really another.
Perhaps they are black saddle bag dragonflies.
