Dragonfly Rock

Time for a silly interlude. These guys were sunning themselves on a rock beside my driveway. It was quite a high traffic zone. The comings and goings put me in mind of that song involving a barley based beverage and a wall...


Five little dragonflies sunning on a rock, five dragonflies soaking up sun,
If one more dragonfly should alight on the rock... 











Six!

Six little dragonflies sunning on a rock, six dragonflies soaking up sun,
If one more dragonfly should alight on the rock...










A WASP?!

Six little dragonflies and a wasp sunning on a rock, six dragonflies and a wasp soaking up sun,
Should one more dragonfly find room on this rock? That'd be...











Seven! (Plus a wasp.)

Seven little dragonflies and a wasp on a rock, seven dragonflies and a wasp soak up the sun,
Luckily that's all that alighted on the rock, so now this silly song is all done!

Cute. I'm impressed that you didn't take the camera and run when that wasp came alone. :-)

Thanks, Rebecca. The wasp definitely made me nervous but I really wanted to find out the maximum number of critters that would be there at one time. I had to stick it out.
