the dragonfly --oops

6/14 AM update: oops! My friend Trace politely informed me off-blog that I had photographed a mayfly, rather than dragonfly. If you google 'mayfly' you'll learn, as I did, these are cool creatures too... not as cool as a dragonfly, IMO, but still amazing. Thanks, Trace!

Look at the wonderful little miracle the pizza delivery guy pointed out to my husband this evening, just outside our front door. I am fascinated by dragonflies, and have never before witnessed this event. My inner child was ecstatic! Dragonflies represent change in many cultures, as well as hope. It's a sign, I just know it. Most everything is, if we're only open to it.

That's amazing Di; in all the bugs I have seen, I have never seen a dragonfly hatched. And to have it captured for the blog! WOW!!!
Hey, stop by my blog today; two pieces of original art I'm putting in a give-away.
Should be uplifting and fun for everyone!
Thanks for posting these amazing pics!

I love dragonflies too, and had forgotten that they are the sign of hope. I am trying to notice all the signs that nature has for us. It is a beautiful day... roxanne
