Scientist-author Jim Walker gives a lively and informative presentation exploring the world of dragonflies on September 27th, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the NW Stream Center. Included are slow-motion videos of a behavior he discovered called the splash-dunk/spin-dry. In this behavior, a dragonfly plows into the water one or more times to bathe (splash- dunk), and then spins at 1,000 rpm to dry off (spin-dry). Professor Walker, known to his friends as “The Dragonfly Whisperer,” will even share tips on how to coax a dragonfly to perch on your finger, and how to see the delightful Happy-face Dragonfly!
