  11. Would I totally sound weird if I admitted to loving dragonflies? I love when they 'hitchhike' a ride on the edge of my cap while fishing; that they never mind at all if you go about your business while they have a rest on your shoulder ... would LOve to have this set, Ms. Shirley! You do know that we also hatch dozens of butterflies, right? Weird, I know...
