They so look forward to their walks! Their innate timing baffles me and it has nothing to do with needing to defaecate, its all about the “getting out”. Time to find some plastic bags because we know it’s inevitable if we don’t take any, they indeed will poop!
This time we would take my camera too. So many times see the perfect shot but left the camera home. Today would be different….leaving prepared. Expectation is key.
It was a quiet walk, everyone in, hear music coming from a condo nearby; its a definite; “curl up, read a good book and sip in tea day”. Almost regretting the whole idea, trekking in drizzle when we spy him; a RED DRAGONFLY, my very first! It’s a “hold my breath time”! So gray all around us nevertheless this vibrant flash of red enveloped our vision. And to think I almost didn’t go! Have been waiting to see one of these my whole lifetime!
A gentle creeping in, zoom time and “snap” a twig announces my presence, nevertheless the trigger is hit, praying the shot was captured. Could it be? It looks as if this little guy was holding onto a raindrop!
Such excitement, what a rush it was to see him, they’re rare around this area; Red Dragonfly – Crocothemis servilia And then I see another flash of red on a plant nearby. The habitat was so inviting.
Drinking in all of the beauty God has bestowed upon us this day, EVERYDAY!! All we have to do is explore the significance of the moment, like a visitation from a red dragonfly, even while walking the dogs. YES, everyday is a gift
When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things – not the great occasions – that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.
