Ja, it was a joke.  That was why the original post contained a {8^D.  I
thought it entertaining that these protestors thought themselves interesting
enough to deploy expensive surveillance gear.  I can see more of them than I
care to know about from a safe distance with no optical equipment.

I grew up in Florida, where dragonflies are often huge.  Protestors that
come to Washington from other parts are often astounded by these monsters.
I thought it hilarious in any case.

Roger that.  One of the protestors carried a sign that read "Stop the war
now!"  Well, we ARE stopping the war now.  Wait until they see what happens
when we stop stopping the war.
