It's November and, at first, you'd think most insects are gone for the season. Mosquitoes are largely absent. But we haven't had a hard freeze yet, and I've been seeing lots of insects: house flies, ants, grasshoppers, moths, and dragonflies to name a few. When I was at Broadmoor Sanctuary on November 4th, I walked into the meadow with a friend and soon we were both sporting dragonfly legs. Meadowhawks were everywhere and for some reason they were particularly friendly. They clung to our jeans without any fear. I even got to look one straight in the eyes. And my delighted friend sported four, five, six, and sometimes seven resting on her blue-jean legs.
