This little aquatic monster is a dragonfly in the middle of childhood. Just like human kids, they grow up wild!

“Welcome to Perry Lake and your Growing Up WILD field trip,” I smiled at a small group of kids and adults on our first field trip of the spring.

“Lakes are cradles for all sorts of babies as they grow up,” I told the group. “How many of you like to play in the mud and water as you grow up wild?” The little ones — only 3 and 4 years old, grinned. One student looked up at his teacher. “I love mud best!” I chuckled in agreement.
