Summer Dragonfly

Oh my the dragonfly with gossamer wings and long, slender body with bright markings almost blends in with the bright leaves and algae at the pond.

As it stops to rest on a blade of pond grass, I watch the Widow Skimmer dragonfly with wings straight out from its sides motionless for just a second. Then it quickly buzzes on to another blade of grass then a waterlily.

To watch the dragonfly is to remember how quickly summer buzzes by. Although the hot, humid summer has just started, I’ll soak in every second of it–like the dragonfly.
