Every summer there are a few weeks here on the farm when the dragonflies are especially thick in the air between the studio and the garden.
It seems early but it appears that dragonfly mating season has begun.
Despite the triple digit heat I lingered to watch the show last evening as I walked from the studio to the house.
The light shimmering off the coppery wings was utterly mesmerizing.
I LOVE dragonflies. I’m jealous.
So do I! I’ve had a fascination with dragonflies and damselflies for decades.
Every summer I look forward to the dragonfly mating season. The air is thick with them and I feel magically transported, as if I’ve entered a fairy tale.
