Green Eyed Monster

Well not really. I think dragonflies are beautiful creatures and not monsters at all.

Except from Why the Dragonfly

The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life. This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis. The eyes of the Dragonfly symbolize the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. Dragonfly’s can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change.

Stripes and Dots

Went to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge yesterday with my nieces and had a really nice relaxing afternoon.  Here is one of the gems that I was able to capture.

Entered for this weeks photo challenge: Textures

Ready for take off



Thanks for visiting!


I have been going to Strawbridge Lake on my lunch break all week waiting for these flowers to bloom.  I know that since the weekend is here and I am not in that area they will surely bloom.

After loading the images from yesterday’s visit I notice that a dragonfly photobombed it.


If you enlarge the below photo you can see the little critters that must also be on their lunch break feasting away.

WP Photo Challenge: Inspiration


My mood helps to inspire me when I tend to think too much and I need to get out of my head. When this happens I grab my trusty Sony a65 or Note 4 and head out the door to capture something interesting.  Arai (my handsome grandson) is also a great inspiration.

Today and yesterday I was inspired once again to go to the lake by my job and take some pictures.  Nature and all of her glorious wonders is awe-inspiring.

Check out the what inspires others and maybe you will get a little more inspired too!

The Green Machine

****UPDATE was able to find out that this is a Pond Hawk Dragonfly.

Yesterday before the storm hit I took a brief walk at the lake by my job and found this dragonfly.

I do not know what type it is so if someone knows please let me know.
