An intersection in Seattle’s Green Lake neighborhood has a new look. Neighbors are pulling out their paint brushes and getting down to business painting a giant dragonfly at 4th Avenue NE and NE 60th Street.

The wingspan is a whopping 120 feet.

“It’s a green darner dragonfly, which is actually the state insect of Washington,” said organizer Lisa Cach. “And we’re close to Green Lake, so we do see dragonflies a lot. It seems like a good fit, especially for a key intersection.”

Neighbors say the project has been a great way to get to know each other.

Organizers hope to finish up Sunday.
