Rescued by a Swarm of Dragons

Once before, I had a run-in with these dragons. I was visiting my son when we were attacked by mosquitoes. Suddenly a swarm of about 20 dragonflies arrived, and the mosquitoes were quickly devoured.
    Just this week I had a similar experience. My wife noticed a great many dragonflies that she mistook for small birds.
    I walked outside and soon realized what was going on. A great swarm of gnats and flying aphids were being harassed by several hundred dragonflies. It was amazing to see so many of these aerobatic fliers at one time. They never collided with each other but made passes through the gnats and never missed. This aerobatic performance lasted almost an hour before the dragons ran out of fuel and went on their way.
