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

I suppose I should just leave it as is–a beautiful dragonfly and a lovely quote. But that dragonfly’s little head looks to me so much like that of a demented alien bent on taking over earth that I can’t resist mentioning it. And now you’re going to see it forever, too. (Demented laugh.) In this case, I was fortunate enough to escape its evil clutches. Happy Tuesday. 🙂

I walk for exercise three mornings a week, carrying my iPhone because photo ops happen all the time at the park.  I keep track of my walks on Map My Walk and was relieved to discover the “Pause workout” button, enabling me to stop for photos without having my pace impacted.  But every so often, I take a photo walk, carrying my Nikon with telephoto lens as well as my iPhone.  I don’t map those walks, as a distance that takes about 30 min. on an exercise day may take as long as an hour and a half on a photography day!

Last week, my photo walk day turned out to be cloudy with the threat of rain.  I packed a plastic bag in my fanny pack to cover  my camera if necessary.  I wasn’t sure if I should expect much in the way of animal life, but perhaps because it still seemed like night or because there were hardly any other people, it was an excellent day, as you’ll see from the following photos.  This is true soul food.
