Dragonflies claim my attention any time I see one. If aliens insects invade the world, ala the old sci-fi movies, I hope they’re dragonflies. At least they’ll look beautiful doing it, although I suppose it depends how big they are! The phrase “Gossamer wings” could have been written to describe these wings.

It was just one of those nights
Just one of those fabulous flights
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings
Just one of those things
