Photo Friday: Hitting Gold

July 29, 2016

I love dragonflies.  They are harmless to humans, and they eat mosquitos and black flies.  Dragonflies come in a variety of colors, and they make great photo subjects.

This week I was at Mill Creek park, shooting every dragonfly that would sit still long enough, when I saw something golden cross my path.  I went to where it landed, and saw a black dragonfly, with golden wings.  This was something I had never seen, so I started snapping.

After 10 good shots, I found one that was exceptionally clear, so I have chosen this as the photo of the week, and my favorite shot of the month.

Day 47: What Comes Natural

What Comes Natural

 

Wings start to flutter

Then glide effortlessly

Through the air.

Hovering

Then disappearing in a blur

Making flight look easy

But only because

You were made that way.
