Blue Dragonfly at San Diego Botanic Garden

Photo Description
Having a good time does not always require money. Every 1st Tuesday of the month, San Diego Botanic Garden offers free admission to San Diego County residents. (I only had to pay parking which was just $2).

You could check your local area to see if there are any free events or admissions to your local gardens or any free events happening in your area by doing an easy online search.

This is a great spot to go with your family, have a walk within 37 acres and enjoy nature + it is very kid friendly. There are lots of kid activities and a play area for kids. It is the perfect spot for kids to mingle with other kids and have a fun time too! This is also a venue where you could book for weddings, meetings, and parties, too.

While on our walk, we love looking for the dragonflies! We found one! I was able to capture a really close up picture for you all to see!

That is actually a DAMSEL FLY, not a Dragonfly.

I think you are right. Here is the link I found that looks like the same insect:

I learned something new, he-he. Totally did not know. Hmmm, unsure how to make the correction on the post. :)

I'm going to leave the title since it is a mess to change them after the fact. But I did change the main page to include Damselflies as well as Dragonflies and added a little bit of info about the difference. I'm always learning something new. :)

Our bug world is amazing, isn't it ?!!!! Want to try something interesting? Find some really small pebbles - only a little bigger than sand, and toss a handful into the air when there are Dragonflies zipping around.

I did this growing up, and they think they're bugs flying and will dive after them...sometimes even catching and holding them briefly until they figure out they aren't bugs at all, and drop them mid-flight. It's a fun experiment !!!
