Well, maybe not in the fantasy sense, but the closest thing to those magical creatures I have come across in this very physical world. Since returning from Costa Rica, I have found a new muse. Dragonfly has appeared in my world-and in my garden, adding an amazing presence of color, fluidity and lightness to my days and inspiring my soul. I would like to share my new friends with you here today.
They come in shades of blue….
With whispers of wonder.
To dance among the pastel blooms that collect the scattered raindrops of a Summer shower.
Those that bear the colors of their namesake’s leathery skins..
On a tightrope of electrical power they balance, threatening to fly away if I come too close, their golden wings glimmering in the evening sunlight.
A woven wonder, their wings are a gauzy delight!
Standing on their hands to perform feats of athletic prowess, they brace their bodies against the early morning breezes..
It proudly takes its bow..
And it finds a tasty morsel to snack on.
They are a treasure in my little green garden world. It’s no wonder they come to see the beauty there.
The roses climb..
And the Hibiscus blushes before them.
Where do they sleep? I do not know. I only hope they return another day, to delight my senses while they add beauty and magic to the place I call home.
Smile for the camera!
Color and Light! A magical combination. No wonder my garden grows so happily!
I can hardly wait to see what gifts tomorrow holds..I truly never realized there was such variety in the world of the common dragonfly. They are magical indeed.
May your day be beautiful…
