Natural Phenomenon

Yesterday afternoon, we were in our backyard and witnessed the most awesome sight. Those little highlights in the photo are dragonflies.

Most were low to the ground and you could really see them in the shadows, but a lot were in the tree tops. It was around 5:30, so I assume they were having dinner at Windham Acres.
