It’s rare for a person to actually see an iris dragon, or at least to recognize one. They’re quite good at hiding, folding up their wings in such a way as to trick the eye into thinking they’re just another fancy iris. By the time there’s any realization that a second look is needed, they’ve fluttered off to some more flowers. More fascination comes in the fact that they don’t even need eyes to “see” their environment; the “teardrops” that hang down from their tail are more advanced and sensitive than any insect’s antennae. If by some chance you do manage to see one that isn’t hiding, they tend to like gentle rubs on their backs, right between the wings. They’re very soft and fuzzy there.
I did a thing and now my whole arm hurts.
