Dragonfly Loop-de-Loop

6:30 p.m. Running down canyon from milepost 2.0, I estimate approximately 200 dragonflies hovering above open meadows and along the road. Near mile 0.9, a gnat is hovering about 10 feet in front of me back lit by the setting sun. A dragonfly swoops in from the right, executes a 12 inch loop-de-loop, snatches the gnat, and then does a victory barrel roll off to the left.
