Dragonfly Time

Walking down the lane with The Old Man and see two dragonflies. Identical. Pristine. But not seen this type before. Do try looking 'em up and it seems they are Broad-Bodied Chasers ... maybe female... and are widespread in England and Europe.

The book I do check them in says the genders start out the same and the male develops a "pruinescence" that renders a blue appearance to its body. What a word.... "pruinescence".

Find a "new" dragonfly - find "new" word.
