Dragon fly's we had on flying around our works recently i was surprised just how big it was.
This one looked more like a cartoon helicoptor.


We had one in our sun lounge four weeks or so ago, when the weather was nice. I put my hand behind the blinds to open a window, so he could get out, and he hopped onto the back of hand. He stood on my middle finger, his body was slightly longer than my finger and his wings were wider than my hand. He was very chunky. When we stepped outside he just sat on my hand for a few minutes before taking off. He was blue, green and brown.
Without doubt he was the biggest I've seen in this country.

Has your wife considered a hand grenade, far more affective.
