175/365: Blue Dasher
I got to talk about dragonflies on one of our local news stations earlier this week! The daytime weather reporter comes out to our field station every now and again to do a live weather report and interviews some museum staff when she does. I got to talk about a citizen science project I run that gets kids across NC outside to study dragonflies in their natural environment. We caught some dragonflies to show off on the report, and my coworker here is demonstrating a good way to hold a dragonfly so it doesn't injure itself. All four wings over the back, grab all four wings at once. This dragonfly flew away unharmed! Dragonflies have been my favorite insects for ages, so I can totally geek out about them and was thrilled to get to tell people about them on tv!
