What might next year bring?

The last little dragonfly... maybe it will return next year or maybe it won't. Delicate creatures - you just never know what they encounter. This little guy was small when he arrived in early spring. I just didn't have enough blooms then to keep him hanging around.

About mid-summer I noticed this black and white dragonfly. I'd never seen one like this. Indeed I almost missed seeing it at all because of the wing transparency. It practically faded into the background of my concrete wall. Braver than the blue colored one, I could approach and watch him for a long time. I wonder if I'll get a last glimpse of a black and white one before Autumn really kicks in?

There's another "fly" I once observed. Maybe I should call it a "flyby". It was the briefest, but scariest moment, ("what the heck is that?").  I don't know any details but it happened within a few days of the 2001 September World Trade Center event. Years later I came across it on the Internet; it was called a drone. Haven't seen one since and that's okay with me. 

Are you a nature watcher? Do you like to keep your eyes on the sky? 


  1. I really like dragonflys and their realatives - the damselflys. You can tell them apart by the fact that dragonfly's eyes are next to each other and damselfly's have space between them. Also when dragonflys are at rest their wings remain open but damselflies fold theirs away.
    Lesson over :-)

  2. Bazza, how interesting. I never knew that! But now I know that I have both types visiting my yard. Hopefully when they return I can capture a photo of the red-orange one.
    Thanks so much for the lesson, and for visiting!!
