Orange dragonflies live by the koi pond. They have the most wonderful wings. Beautiful things are everywhere. Click on the photos to make the picture bigger.

Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly
Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky.
~Dante Gabriel Rossetti


  1. just beautiful.
    when I was a little kid, we knew them as darning needles. my mother used to scare the crap out of me by telling me that they would come at night and sew my lips shut if I told lies. It's a wonder I'm even half sane...

  2. Oh my gosh! The things parents tell kids. Someday, I'm going to write a book about all the weird things that grownups tell kids. I remember a babysitter who told me if I bit my cuticles they would grow to be a foot long. Hasn't worked yet. :-)

  3. Beautiful photo- looks like Museum quality. NOthing happens by accident, so perhaps this one is meant to be the start of a new book-story for you.

  4. Wow the pics are wonderful! I have trouble seeing them on LJ, for some reason, but they are perfect here!

  5. What a photo, Maz! Was it taken with the Lumix?
