By the time this blog rolls around, I will be, post foot surgery, bed bound and probably not quite with it. But I am hoping that I will be able to get this linked to the other bloggers in the group. In the past few months we have blogged to a quote. For the next two months we have left it open.
The surgery I was due to have in the beginning of July was postponed and so I decided to take a walk. When I go out into the wetland I always look for the dragonflies. There are so many varieties and so beautiful to look at. They fascinate me. Dragonflies are so mechanical to look at. Their wings are hinged at the back. The back of their heads have strange dots. Their eyes are bulging. Their mouths are real gnashers. With a macro or zoom lens you get to see all the tiny hairs on their legs and body. I find dragonflies delightful to watch, and most interesting close up.
Here are just a few that I saw on Friday.
Having flown the earth for 300 million years
dragonflies symbolize our ability to overcome times of hardship.
The remind us to take time to reconnect with our own strength,
courage and happiness
