Dragonfly


Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly



Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky.
~Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Silent Noon

Thank you everyone for your kinds words and healing thoughts for Ms. M!   She appreciates each and every one of them!

Mr. Tide worked more of his photographic magic, and captured the dragonfly above which is the most gorgeous shade of green! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

    I've tried to get good shots of dragonflies but can't seem to get them just right.
    I'm very impressed. Thanks for sharing these.

  4. These photos are amazing. I adore dragonflies and we have loads near us as we live next to a forest and there is a pond nearby.
    I'm sorry to hear about your friends ill health - I hope she makes a speedy recovery.

  14. Please send your husband to my house and maybe I can finally capture a dragonfly on camera :) I see them flying around but they never land! The blue one is still my favorite even though that green one is definitely gorgeous also.

    Hope Ms. M is continuing to recover and is back arranging all her flowers soon!

  16. Awesome photos! We watch the dragonflies zooming all over our backyard and joining meadow every evening during our 'happy hour' on the deck, and are astounded at the number of them. They are truly amazing and such a blessing!

  17. Hi again, thanks for stopping by my butterfly post! I was surprised at the fact that the phlox flowers attracted so many butterflies and the flowers have a wonderful scent! I planted them in the front garden only because they tolerate shade - and there's a huge old maple tree shading most of the area. The phlox have also either reseeded or sent out new shoots via their roots system, but whichever, they have spread like wildfire and look wonderful right now. Ciao, bella!

  19. What a beautiful shade of green too! Isn't it amazing how their thin legs wind around their perch?
