DRAGON FLY VISIT


HOW'S THIS FOR A SATURDAY VISITOR?  A beautiful Dragonfly.



I just love this visitor!  He was approximately 3 inches in length and his wingspan was even wider!  I love the delicacy of his wings and the grace of his body lines.  Nature is so wonderful and intricate!  If we could see Fairies' wings, I am sure this is what they would look like-giggle!

Upon Fairies' wings I fly
And all the pleasures I derive
Are from floating in a gentle breeze
That carries me from lake to trees
And ever, ever upward.

Hovering over the lake, I spy
A large mouth Bass who has me
      In his eye,
But just as he decides to strike
I lift myself from his sight
On my trusty Fairy wings!

I love dragon flies and I've always imagined them to be enchanted fairies...very mystical creatures and very, very helpful in controlling the mosquito population.

Happy weekend :-)

I just love their wings. They look so intricate yet fragile.

This is beautiful, Kerrie.

I hope Bill is feeling stronger.

What an amazing picture you got, of the Dragon Fly! I so love them. And am always trying to get a good photo of them.
