Dragonflies

Yesterday it rained.  Today the south lot was filled with dozens of giant, hand-sized dragonflies.  ZIP!  ZOOM!  ZOWIE!  I hypothesize that they were out hunting mosquitoes at dusk, or some other insect aroused by the recent rain.  Possibly they were looking for mates, though, as they reproduce in water.
