One Reason Why

This is one of the reasons why I don't 'clean up' my gardening beds early in the season. The dry stalks of last years' blooms provide a drying rack for young dragonflies that have recently eclosed and need to unfold and dry their new wings in the sun. I'm happy to oblige.

Successful dragonflies mean fewer mosquitoes; they're great for pest control since they are carnivorous.
