Nature Study: Lizard and Dragon Fly
This week our nature study was pretty free form. E-R headed off with the camera in search of a lizard.
and found this little guy.
I-E and I happened upon this guy.
I never realized how well dragon flies camouflage themselves.
I was also able to identify this guy as a dragonfly instead of a damselfly
because of the way it is holding its wings. Dragonflies hold their wings horizontal while at rest. Damselflies hold their wings vertical to their bodies while at rest.
After going home we researched dragonflies and damselflies, but were unable to identify this guy
though we learned a ton from our research.
Two excellent websites we used for research.
What have you found in your neck of the woods lately?
