That dragonfly on that stalk?
In my job, we often help our Utilities customers with geospatial analytics on data we collect from airplanes and helicopters. One of those customers had once told me about the fleet of helicopters they keep for maintenance and inspection work on transmission lines. I had never in my life seen a helicopter doing that … till today.
Driving down a highway in Minnesota, I thought I spotted what looked like a dragonfly on the pole. Sure enough! It was exactly what the customer had told me. Pulled over quickly to roll down the window and a take a few snapshots. It was eerie to realize how still the helicopter was!!!
