I have been following this dude around the terrace for weeks now to create these photos from different angles.
This guy visits us every summer for his holidays.
When you see red, you sometimes think of danger but this character does not instil fear, he just makes me smile as he flutters around.
I enjoy watching life's creatures as they all play a part in the beautiful world around us.
They tend not to sit around too long and one day there were three red and this black dude as well. They were flying all over the place.
I think he needs to epilate!
I'd love to have a video of them in action but they are pretty quick.
I was researching about the dragonfly and this is what I found:
Dragonfly Spirit Animal & Totem
"The dragonfly totem carries the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life. As spirit animal, the dragonfly is connected to the symbolism of change and light. When the dragonfly shows up in your life, it may remind you to bring a bit more lightness and joy into your life. Those who have this animal as totem may be inclined to delve deep into their emotions and shine their true colors."
Dragonfly Facts: They have been around for 300 million years. They like to eat mosquitoes and they can fly at over 30 mph!
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
