On my walk to the creek with the dogs yesterday I realised I wasn’t alone. I looked up to find a cluster of dragonflies following me.
I juggled my glass of wine to get a few shots with my phone. I didn’t aim, I just waved my phone around in the air in the hope that I would capture something (okay, now you know I’m just a scatter-gun-shoot-anywhere-and-hope-for-the-best kind of photographer!)
Just in case you can’t see these monsters in the above photos I’ve expanded part of a picture and put it below
I’m lucky in the fact that I actually love creatures of all kinds. I have friends from the colder climates who visit and feel a little uncomfortable with the amount of insects we have here.
I called one of my sons who also lives in the tropics and he informed me that the emergence of the dragonflies means the ‘wet season’ is over.
Are you also getting subtle (or not so subtle) signs of the season change in your part of the world?
