Oh, the horror!

Meet the Giant Dragonfly.

I met a giant dragonfly today while I was standing around in the garden with the cat. It flew past the back of my head, with a sensation not unlike a bumble bee crossed with a small bird. As I’m sure you can imagine, this prompted a response which I would broadly categorise as “What the heck was that?”. I had a look in the direction the flying thing went, but didn’t see any bumble bee birds; but happened to look in the other direction, and lo, there it was – a giant dragonfly resting on the wall of the garage.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to summon Cyrus and my camera fast enough to grab a photo of it; but yeah. I saw my first giant dragonfly today.

I’d be fine with not bumping into another one. They are called giant for a reason.
