30 Minutes in the Life: May 2017

So you may or may not know that I flooded our house by accident the other day and the results were not pretty.  Suffice to say we are in the midst of a construction zone and I am over it.  Everywhere, there is dust. All the furniture is gathered in one room or in passageways.  Right now tiling is going on in the living room and I am finally getting some sense of order upstairs.  Yeah, the water flowed from upstairs, down the staircase and through the flooring, coming out of every outlet like a water fall.

So my 30 minutes has been a challenge.  I went out today and found a few but I decided to add in a few from the other day as well.

I love dragonfly.  The are one of the most unique insects I have watched.  In the cycle of life, dragonfly eat other flying insects such as mosquito’s, midges, and pretty much anything smaller than themselves.  They will also eat butterfly, moth and smaller dragonfly.  The birds eat the dragonfly.  It is one big food chain in our eco-system.

Dragonfly, for me, are uniquely made with all sorts of connecting parts, along with their bulging eyes.  So below are some of the dragonfly I have come across today, and on a few other occasions.

    • Thank you Liz. The upside of the flood is that major renovations are going on, but yes I have managed to escape a few times. I do like dragonflies I have to be honest.
