I love dragonflies...
So last night, I was sitting in the recliner, and I hear this rustling noise. I am thinking "Dear God, please NO MICE!". I lean over to look in the candle holder only to be smacked in the forehead at 2 am, by (at the time) God only knows..
I thought "OH MY GAAAAAH, it must be a HUGE waterbug/american roach". AAAAH!
Doug rushed in to see what was the matter. Then told me it was a dragonfly. I semi calmed down, except it was flying so hard and heavy and bumping into everything it nearly gave my old soul a heart attack.
Eventually it went on the cabinet top to sleep - I guess?
The next morning I seen it chilling on my window sill:
Eventually I settled on thinking a glass cup with a piece of card stock paper SHOULD work..
The only glass cup I had in my cabinet was (of all things- a DRAGONFLY cup) lol, sweet irony!! ;)
I scooped him up and stuck the paper between the glass.
Of course, I had to admire him for a good 10 minutes before I actually went outside and set it free. So beautiful!!!
