Flitting around a patch of dried alligator flags, this golden dragonfly finally found a resting place ... though it was short-lived. I love the way its color is well camouflaged and its transparent wings pick up a glint of sunshine. The presence of such insects means there is plenty of prey and as an unwilling victim of the mosquito, I appreciate the dragonfly's prowess.

Up to my eyeballs in deadlines and overdue work and home activities, I can only wish for the latent nature of this effective camouflage - to be hiding in 'plain sight', to be able to watch and observe the world around me without being detected (or interrupted, or bothered, or...)! Dream on! Freedom Park, Naples, FL

  1. I would like to stop the world for a while, catch up with what I have to do and then restart it. Multiple deadlines certainly make life challenging at times.
