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.
