a special trip to the mailbox

I'm hoping to feel up to making progress on some glass pendant WIPs today (been fighting a bit of a cold), but in the meantime, I'll share a photo from yesterday. Our mailbox is at the curb, and since I'm not consistent about watering plants, I use silk flowers in the mailbox flower box. The fact the flowers are fake didn't matter to this gorgeous dragonfly -- he rested there nearly hidden for quite some time. If it had been a cloudy day I might have missed him, but the sun danced so beautifully off his stunning wings I saw him instantly & dashed back in the house for the camera. If you click on the photo, you can see him in more detail. 

Wishing you all a truly enjoyable day!

Di, I can't get over the picture of the dragonfly!! I took a picture the other day of one in my morning glories and it looks so much like it!! I'll have to post it on my blog.
