Ashlyn found an injured dragonfly in our back yard and was determined to nurse it back to health before setting it free. After being pampered, this little guy may never leave. Actually, for those of you concerned about the bug being tortured. I talked her into letting it nap, and it "flew away" while she was gone. So no worries, he's healthy and free.
It all started with a bowl with a few drops of water, plastic wrap with holes and stickers.
She started out making him cozy.
Then a stroller ride.
Hot pink sofa lounging.
His own bed to sleep.
Here was the whole set up. After his nap on that bed, when Ashlyn went to do other things, is when he escaped. Was funny how he appeared he could fly, but was not. If she was on our hand, he just hung on. He'd flap around but not fly away. Later when I put him under a tree, he was not there very long. Maybe he was coming back looking for his nice bachelor pad she set up.
