I was walking Cookie around the neighborhood one morning when I noticed this dragonfly struggling on its back. When I got back home I told Jackson about it, and soon there were three or four kids squatting down around it, waiting to see what happened next. What happened was that Jackson found a stick, flipped the dragonfly over, and then everyone stuck around for awhile until it was well enough to fly away.
