THANK YOU ALL FOR SPECIAL COMMENTS
BIRTH OF A DRAGONFLY
I wandered lonely as can be
Searching for dragonflies to see
Finding some treasures far and wide
Magical sights captured with pride
One day in my field was a sight
Dragonflies hovered in sunlight
Dancing and playing near me
Landing on grasses and tall trees
Showing beauty and contentment
Their lives short with energy spent
Precious dragonflies always here
Will reborn after my long years
Magic gifts from heavens above
Maybe sign of eternal love
A HAWKER dragonfly , shortly after emerging from its nymph case
.(this can be seen in image ) . When its wings dried , they opened
gradually. It fell down –then climbed back up the reed . After an hour
or so –it flew away. The following day, it flew back to the same area
One of several dragonfly species , discovered –recently on reed beds on our land .(A magical discovery )
This is either a MIGRANT or SOUTHERN HAWKER ., species .
The nymph case ---exuvia is the exoskeleton of the dragonfly, which it lived in for a number of years ,as a nymph in a pond.
The adult dragonfly –only lives for 2 months at the most.
