Dragonfly & Destiny

As an avid fly fisher, with a good deal of time spent on lakes, I have come to appreciate the Dragonfly. I know I attach some pseudo-spirituality, mysticism, good luck karma to them. I don’t get any of this with Damsels, Caddis, Mayflies, Midges in such, that I encounter on stillwaters. No, the Dragonfly, the friendly winged creature lands about me, dances on my fly rod, mates on my oars and generally smiles upon me with good luck. Here’s to you Dragonflies. 

Dragon fly-Garden-Yard Art-Photography-SwittersBEven this past May, when I was nowhere near water and sitting contemplating the morning light and a hard task that was before me…along came a Dragonfly to wish me well…ok, maybe I am reading too much into these delicate creations. Butterflies come close, of course, but Dragonflies rule, for me. 

Oh I know,  “Is he for real? What about is own self-empowerment? He’s leveraging his fate, his life’s direction on an insect that at best only lives a couple of months!” Hey, just hedging my bets, just in case.

    Very nice close up photo! I love dragonflies too! When I take photos of them, it’s often like some of them “let” you come near them! They are very aware/perceptive! They were around long before the time of the dinosaurs and likely will be around long after we (as a species) comes to an end.

    To see a splendid video of them in flight… go to:

    Namaste!

    Early today a dragonfly flew into the glass of our patio door. It was knocked out and collapsed to the bottom of the door. I was going to rescue it but was afraid of crushing it if I opened the door. About half an hour later, I went to take a look and it was gone. Tough dragonfly!
