We have had swarms of dragonflies over our garden almost ever day for the last 10 days or so. This photo is of one that landed briefly. I'd say there are usually from 1 to 2 dozen at a time and they hang around for several hours, presumably catching insects. I understand it's not very common for them to appear in such numbers but does sometimes occur. I haven't seen any other reports of such numbers.
