Dragonflies of Summer at Lily Lake

Estes Park Lily Lake Dragonflies


It was a beautiful day.  The sun was shining.  There was a nice breeze that kept the weather from not being too hot, and we were able to see the beauty of Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, near Estes Park.  Hundreds of brilliant blue dragonflies were flying alongside us as we walked around the lake. There were so many of them that we couldn’t count. As we walked past them, the wind was blowing hard and they looked like tiny blue flags.  They were all holding on tightly to the grass along the banks of the lake, fluttering away, trying hard to hang on – and succeeding!
