Blue Dasher in Framingham

August 25, 2016

Michael Kolodny recorded this video of a blue dasher in Framingham. Michael says the dragonfly was "leaving and returning to the same perch repeatedly at Farm Pond. There were a lot of gnats in the area and you can see in the video it seems to be chewing when it returns to its perch so I wonder if it was feeding".
