Dragon fly phenomena

Yesterday, during our regular after lunch walks, the discussion came to the amazingly huge number of dragon flies in the sprawling lawn of our office. One guy suggested that this is an indication of rain to come. I have heard of this phenomenon by one of my classmates in the last week cricket match. But then it did not rain. But yesterday it rained cats and dogs. I went home drenched in the rain. It did not stop raining till midnight. Bangalore has been getting rains almost everyday this year.
Another thing I noticed yesterday was that dragon flies don’t fly. They float. Once in a couple of seconds or so they flap their wings and the remaining time, they are floating with their wings in a static position.
Hmm, interesting!!
