It was very early one morning last week when I went out to watch the sun rise.. I was coming back from the front of the house when I stop to have a look in the garden by my door. I started to take a couple of picture of the honeysuckle when I noticed this dragonfly just hanging on to one of the flower petals. He didn’t look like he as alive.. I was able to get right up to him and he didn’t budge. I then got worried maybe he might have died just hanging there but then I remembered they like to sit a spell and dry off and since it had been wet the night before I figured this little flower petal must have been where he bedded down for a spell. I was able to get a couple of shots of him and then decided I would leave him be to regenerate himself.. sure enough when I went back out a couple of hours later he was gone. I checked to make sure he didn’t fall from the petal and land in the garden but there was no sign of him.. I’m assuming he was able to fly off somewhere..
I felt blessed to have been able to witness this beautiful creature as I think they are..
