WANDERING GLIDER DRAGONFLY

Wandering gliders are dragonflies that live throughout much of the world, in various climates including mild temperatures and tropical areas. They will fly south in autumn from colder areas, sometimes by the thousands. They feed on a variety of small flying insects, especially mosquitoes, as well as tadpoles. A wandering glider will lay their eggs on a water’s surface. They are unique in that they will use temporary water such as rain pools, as their eggs develop and hatch quickly, producing larvae in as little as four to five days. I found this dragonfly in northern Colorado.
