glimpse of beauty…

along a bleak, parched shoreline of an Oregon lake. A single piece of lush vegetation stood out with this ‘butterfly’ spread to the sun.

Entomolgy/Bugs/Insects Question (Oregon)

Please help identify the decedent. My son seems to be having a bug week. Today at work, he came upon this insect. He held it to the sky and noticed a almost transparent space between the thorax and abdomen of the insect. It did not appear to posses a stinger. We’d be interested in identifying the make and model of this bug.

Dragon Fly Karma

“Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don’t even notice it.”  Sakyong Mipham

My long time, fly fishing, good luck creature is the Dragon Fly. We have bonded in odd ways over the years on the water. I recently completed some patio tile work complete with a Dragon Fly tile.

An underwater predatory beast…above water it has always possessed a positive karma for me. It was a nice visit. I climbed an step ladder some 9′ in the air and bobbed and swayed to stay steady while focusing. The images were taken and then my visitor glided away into the morning sun.
