Dragonfly


Many lives
and faces
water to air
it graces


wings a mosaic beauty


enormous eyes
and lips
tis the season of the
dragonfly

  1. Wow, ravishing photos. It took me a minute to realize the first one was a skeleton.

  2. Yes ms. ArtSparker,
    The first image is the shell of a water bug that the dragonfly emerges out of! If lucky enough to come upon one that is emerging I highly recommend staying for the entire birth! It is cranialsacral slow, but hey it rocks ones world!

  4. Oh, she is beautiful! I cannot wait for ours to arrive - last year the lilies they call home didn't bloom, and we had very few. But this year, the lilies are about to burst - red dragonflies will soon follow. A sign of summer.

  7. Ciel,
    I use a macro lens. But I must be honest and say since I do not use a tripod it is not that easy to use!

    Debi,
    The energy of your comment touched me. I agree they are a sign of summer.

    Ces,
    Lovely to have you visit.

    Purest Green,
    Armored indeed, protecting the enchanting being within!

  24. These insects are really amazing. They seem to love their lives somehow. Perhaps because they linger.

  25. Dragonflies are like magic and your photos capture that essence. So very, very lovely. Perhaps I will go and listen to Michael Franks' "Dragonfly Summer" now...

  26. those are great shots. i especially like the second one.

  27. Wonderful! I love it when dragonflies come to visit...just watching their amazing stunt filled flight is a treat...symbolically when they show up and fly around you they ask that you cut through illusions and pay close attention to what is really going on....a reminder to listen closely to our intuition.
