Be still. Now move slowly. Crouch and wait, focus.
When I was a child, I spent countless hours trying to catch dragonflies as they darted about, hovering back and forth along the shoreline of a river which ran through the middle of my hometown. I never actually got this close as they would always fly away - real fast and sudden-like. Until now.
In Bali I hear that some people catch dragonflies on the ends of sticks covered in gooey tree sap.
Then they pull their wings off, add a little spice and fry 'em up in coconut oil for a tasty snack. Yum!
Well maybe not for me, at least for the foreseeable future. It's funny that when I was a child, I never thought about what I would actually do with a dragonfly were I to catch one. But it's good to note that with the right ingredients and perhaps a camp stove, there's a lot of delicious snacks to be had meandering through the golf courses around here!
