a dragonfly came to stay

I met a baby dragonfly...I've seen lots of the big variety...but this little one bumbled his way into the prayer garden the other morning and I couldn't have been more charmed by him--or her, I can't say for sure. I don't even now how you tell. I do know there are lots of thoughts as to the symbolism of a dragonfly. Just Google it and find you will find your fill. The one that caught my eye and imagination for today is:

Dragonfly symbolism crosses and combines with
that of the butterfly and change.

Sadly, I could not capture a picture of this beauty--he was so small and seemingly see through except for a titch of blue at the end of the tail and another at the shoulder blades from where the paper thin wings extended--and as luck would have it the favored place to land was on a black rod iron decorative fence. So, you will have to take my word for it. Until you see your own baby dragonfly--I hope it is soon. It does lift your heart to see something so small winging its way around the garden.

Dragonflies are one of the most amazing things that I believe was created. Beautiful, they are.
