It seems that whenever we are at the beach we spot dragonflies. Such busy creatures, flitting speedily to and fro, landing for just a second here or there. Chris spotted this one resting in the sand right in front of where we were sitting. At first we thought he might be dead, but he was very much alive and willing to pose for a few quick photos before the Hubby helped him off the wet sand and back into the air. Did you know dragonflies have six legs, yet cannot walk? How impractical.
Chris also found this little fellow resting on a broken reed outside of our beach house, his wings glistening in the morning sun. I am so fascinated by dragonflies! Look at the intricate wings. They are so delicate, and yet they carry that bug near and far at a lightning fast pace. And the eyes. Well, you know the eyes have it. Enough so that I named a seven year old blog after them. Tens of thousands of tiny facets help the dragonfly to see beyond what our human capabilities can even comprehend.
Chris found this Dragonfly on the last day at the beach. Missing wings and compound eyes, but still flitting to and fro, trying to see beyond her human capabilities.
