It’s funny that before I saw the world through the lens of my camera, I never noticed how many different dragonflies there are. The camera allows me to see tiny details that I would have otherwise unnoticed. To admire beauty so oft overlooked.
One shimmering gold and one dazzling red.
Forever frozen for a moment, although flighty through my eyes.
Fluttering gold dust on a blade of grass.
Wings like the web from a spider.
Or a body of coal with paper-thin translucent propellers.
Pastel shades of Easter eggs nearly the size of a hummingbird with fluttering gossamer.
Indecisive, stripes of chalk dust.
Clear with black and blue.
Or wider stripes of black fading into pale blue then clear.
Fighting, or frolicking?
Mystifying, magical, cellophane wings on a fairy body covered in pixie dust.
Psst - It's my hubby, Dennis', birthday today (Friday) and he's finally caught up with me. Yeah, I married a younger man, even if he is only 6 months younger. I tell him this means that he has to listen to me cuz I'm older and wiser. ;)
