An abundance of bugs

What's with all the dragonflies this year? I live in a dry area (well, it used to be dry; we've gotten a good deal more rain than usual since about last winter). In 16 years, I've hardly seen a dragonfly; now they're all over the place. Especially near water, of course, but even just hanging around Wal-Mart (maybe they're waiting for their car repairs to be finished). I was walking by a museum yesterday and this squadron of dragonflies gave me an escort off the premises.

Also, biting flies--why? What genius decided we needed biting flies??? Aren't mosquitos obnoxious enough?
