Reply Thanks slpmartin – not an easy target, the old dragonfly 😉 Reply what a vivid colour! It certainly is fine art! Reply A beautiful red indeed CGP 🙂 Reply neat poem describing nature’s spectacular little helicopter! Reply Haha – I was thinking of helicopters when writing the poem – but wasn’t sure how to fit it in 😉 thanks Stafford. Reply “shimmer” – love that word – that and “flashes” – perfect description of this beautiful creature. Did you take that photo, Gabrielle? Reply Yes, I take all the photos on the blog bluebee (except one or two, and then I always say where I get them from) – I took it on my last walk through the adjacent national park, but when I got home the lens came apart so needs fixing (don’t know how that happened)! Thanks 🙂 Reply Excellent photo! Reply Thanks bb – not easy to snap the little dudes 🙂 Reply Dragonflies are such exquisite creatures. Shimmery, glimmery. I always wonder how they survive in such a brutal world. They truly are a piece of fine art. Gorgeous, Gabe. Reply Thanks Selma – I met Australia’s leading expert on dragonflies a couple of years back (he took us for a walk through our national park) – I thought he must be a very patient man to study such a difficult subject (flitting all over the place etc.,) Reply what an amazing shot!!! Reply Thanks Graham 🙂 Reply Dragonfly in Motion – I like Reply Thanks Kim 🙂 and good to see you! Reply We have sometimes red dragonfly in the garden, I prefer the blue one! But their wings are spectacular, lucid wings shimmer, yes! Reply The blue ones look especially shimmery I think 🙂 they remind me of little fairies flitting here and there in the woods. Reply the blues feel more delicate to me than the reds – and ii like the name – the blue damsel dragonfly cool. Reply poetry and subject both fly! Reply Haha – thanks Aletha 🙂 Reply What a beautiful dragonfly! I don’t think I’ve seen many in such a wonderful shade of red. Your words fit perfectly. 🙂 Reply Thanks Tracey 🙂 Reply Beautiful, both words and image. Love dragonflies…almost as much as my son does. Last summer he begged me to rescue a young blue dragonfly from a spider’s web. Somehow, I managed to get it out and clean the sticky threads from its legs and wings, then watched it fly away. About as close to transcendence as I’ve ever come 🙂 Reply Wonderful – I am glad the blue dragonfly survived 🙂 Reply oh. yeah. beauty. i did miss this one Gabrielle. thank you for linking me to it. ha. beauty image. beauty words. yeah, i’m doing some dragonfly images too. i dont often get a chance to photograph them here – once in a great great while – but suddenly without warning and then gone. and then years before another. hover craft the vermilion body a brush stroke oh. i like that, i may have to push that into haiga. cool. inspired by your work. aloha. …ha. i’ve already tweaked it. if i push it into haiga, you’ll see it. it may still be tweaked more… bwahahahahahaha. fun. aloha – r. sheesh. 3 or 4 versions now. bwahahahahahaha. fun. fun. aloha aloha. Reply Hahahaha – you have a lot of energy Rick – I love the ku (hover craft, yes, helicopter, hyperactive fairy – haha – vermilion is a wonderful word). Looking forward to the final version ps. Benedicte is having a blog holiday for a month if you are wondering what’s happened to her. Reply fun is always a good source of energy. yeah. thank you. i have too many ideas and want-to-do lists sometimes. way fun tho. yeah, i really like that word vermilion too. not the first time i’ve… found it fun… it shows up in things i do every so often… this is from a “Skinny Alphabet Book” project i did in 2007/08: http://wrick19.multiply.com/photos/album/8/2007-08_Skinny_Book#photo=12 thanks for the heads-up on Benedicte’s holiday. yeah, i saw that – i actually posted to her last posts recently. i have lapses of getting around to blogs then i have zoom-ins where i get to some. but never enough. sheesh. must be like wine and cheese – and mushrooms too. never enough. bwahahahahaha Reply That is so beautiful Rick – value and vermilion (skinny alphabet book) 🙂 You are making me hungry again (too early here for wine, cheese and mushrooms – haha). Reply thank you Gabrielle – that alphabet book was fun to do. may be some day i’ll put it together. bwahahahaha. or do another in a more easily published format. it’s 2:23 AM. and i’m not hungry at all. bwhahaha – cool on that. aloha.
