Hello Mr. Dragonfly


I never knew dragonflies held still for long.

So it was a pleasant surprise today when I came home from walk and found this little guy hanging out by the front door.

Ok, so he was not really little by bug standards. He was HUGE! Like 3 inches long with a wing span a little more than that.

Believe me: I don’t like bugs. I freak out when I see them. Especially when they are close to me.

But this little guy….  well, I didn’t freak. He was just so, so cool. His coloring was amazing.

So I ran in, grabbed a camera and came out. And there he still was.

Turned the flash off and just shot pictures for about 10 minutes. I thought he’d fly off, irritated by my papparazi behavior but he stayed. 🙂

In fact, it was about 20 minutes after I stopped that he fluttered away.
